HOW TO – Make a Humbucking guitar pickup

Backview2
John writes – “The goal was to make a set of humbucking pickups for an es175 jazz electric style guitar that I have just about finished. Since it isn’t a heavy metal guitar that I was shooting for I wanted some pickups that were a bit milder and cleaner then the Super Distortion Pickups. […] These pickups are some of the rarest and most expensive pickups on the market today. Can pickups like that still be made today? I would think so!”Link.

    Just had to make one myself just then. Fantastic idea, really easy and quick. Very clever. Using an alligator clip makes it easy to hold (and change) the battery.

    I love these things, but can’t find an appropriate button battery holder. Any suggestions?

    I just used a different kind of battery, but you could make your own out of shapelock and a paperclip! http://shapelock.com

    Cool idea! Here’s mine. I used a 9V battery. http://www.flickr.com/photos/16239986@N00/155031037/ The contacts on mine are guitar strings through a spring on the back.

    It took a long time to get the guitar strings within the spring just right, but now its super sensitive.
