Book For Building Pups or Stats for Firebird


Recommended Posts

I've had a huge love/hate relationship with my current 'bird ([flapper] ) for almost 10 years now. The time has come to GUT the ceramic pickups completely and try an Alnico build with 42 guage wire.


I am convinced my '76 FBV was so much better sounding than the current one and those magnets were Alnico5 (I believe).


Anyways, I seek published information on these pickups (as in a Book) as there is TOO MUCH varience on the internet for me to invest the time and money into such a tedious project.

No thanks to all the custom builders out there. This isn't rocket science and I can't justify their prices. If it ain't GIBSON, it will be made by meB) .
