Repair: A very old Rowe pickup with a paper bobbin
This pickup was dead and required a rewind. Problem is it made with a paper bobbin. It requires somewhat thick paper to be rigid but has to be thin enough to still fit in the assembly. Aster much searching I used one of my business cards which I made more rigid by soaking it in lacquer.
Post repair notes
I got this email from the amazing Vinnie Zummo
Here is a piece I was working on for MTV. For all the guitar trax I used the small Japanese 60's guitar with the pickup U fixed. I thought U might want to hear it in action. I'm playing sloppy and simplistic on purpose by the way. I play what's required! :-) thanx again for the great work. VZ
