    ULTRASONIC Pickups by Bill Lawrence. My 80s NOS collection keeps growing. Running out of guitars to put them in ... almost totally noise-free, linear frequency curve. As Bill said:" A perfectly made pickup has no sound of its own. Compare ist to a clear glass of water.  If you want  color, select any color you like, as long as you start with clear water, because if you start with a glass of brown water,  your color  choices are very limited. As you can add color to clear water, use a pickup that is free of internal flaws, and you can colorize it the way you like by adjusting your amplifier, changing the value of the controls, or adding capacitors, resistors and INDUCTORS to the wiring." #billlawrence #billlawrencepickups #billlawrenceproducts #billandbeckylawrence #ultrasonic #ultrasonicpickups #guitarelectronics #guitarpickups #guitarworkbench

    It's been a minute (20 weeks) since I've spent any meaningful time in the shop.  I told myself that I was going to make meaningful headway on several house and guitar-related projects this weekend.  I decided to revisit my pickup project for the Sabre guitar and Groper bass... So, I busted out the @mojotone pickup winder and got to spinning wire on my 3D printed bobbins.  These are my first three attempts at production-grade coils.  The tough part is, since I'm trying reproduce a design that has been out of production since before I was born, there isn't much reference material around.  I'm basically guessing on the number of winds based on the physical size/capacity of the bobbin/coil and the output (DC resistance) of the original set I'm working off of.  Since the original pickups are cast in resin, I am unable to disassemble them to get exact specifications.  So far, educated guessing and a pair of calipers has panned out quite well!  I got pretty damned close!  I've settled on 6200 winds of 42awg poly wire @ 5.7k.  I think Bill Lawrence would be proud... Now to make baseplates and finish grinding and cutting the Alnico magnets...😒 #coloradomade #3dprinting #billlawrencepickups #eaststreetguitars #luthier #diy #cad #pickupwinding

    This au naturel Nuno Bettnecourt N4 certainly shreds, but it would be a mistake to categorize it as a "shred guitar" because it can do so much more! The Bill Lawrence L500 pickup in the bridge position sounds like a hulked-out old PAF. The lows are muscular, and they have more meat than gristle. The midrange is punchy and aggressive, and the highs sound round and fat. The Seymour Duncan '59 in the neck position has more of a classic sound: singing trebles along with warm, clear lows and broad, throaty midrange. Together, these sounds give you a wonderfully expressive playing experience that may very well alter your conception of what a Floyd Rose-equipped guitar can do. Interested? Drop us an email or call the store for more details. .

    Aquesta guitarra està a moltes de les llistes de guitarres més curioses del món. I és que no tots els dies es veu una Gibson sonex. Aquesta guitarra de màstil collat, cos de material compost i pastilles dissenyades per el mític Bill Lawrence, va ser una alternativa econòmica a la Les Paul a principis dels vuitanta. El seu pes exagerat, la seva escala encara més curta i les pastilles massa canyeres van fer que només fos valorada pels grups de punk i que durés menys al catàleg de Gibson que una cervesa a les mans dels seus peluts propietaris.
Va arribar al meu taller en una caixa, amb la pala trencada i res al seu lloc, després d'encolar, nitro negra, overpray i no se quantes coses més tornarà a sonar. Déu salvi a la Sonex!!!
