what happens to all that wire, anyway?
Pickups occasionally need to be rewired. It's a slow process; the tech gently holding the wire between the roll and the bobbin, thousands of turns by the little armature on the pickup rewinding machine, an hour (or more) of your life you'll never get back. But what happens to the old wire? That material taken off of the bobbin and magnet? In the spirit of reuse and recycle, Gary keeps his pate warm with vintage copper.
