Guitar Pickup


I love playing my acoustic guitar, but that clean sound of a single coil pickup is even better.

Unfortunately, electric guitars are really expensive, and I didn't want to ask my parents.

Let's make it! My local speaker winding shop generously donated me enough 43 gauge copper wire for the project. Now wire that thin is thinner and weaker than a strand of hair. I delicately turned the wire thousands of times around 6 machine screws - by using my power drill. Two neodymium magnets were added to the back to generate the magnetic field.

It didn't sound bad at all, enough for me to practice. The hum in the video was due to an ungrounded section on the shielded cable. As I connected my homemade guitar to my computer, I played the strings E, G, B, E, B, G one at a time and heard the magical melody of Metallica’s, “Nothing Else Matters” through the speakers :)
