Now we are settled in to our larger workshop I'm going to be trialing an idea I've had in mind for some time: Pickup winding days.
There are lots
of build your own guitar courses ... but I believe this will be the first ever course for pickups!
Two students at a time can come and spend a day with me in the Oil City workshop, and under full instruction, make a their own set of pickups ... all materials included.
Tea and coffee will be available as required and (we hope) a pub lunch will be included in the price ... at a wonderful hostelry mere yards from our premises ... perhaps come and share a beer with me and our team after the days efforts (beers not included lol)
Learn how to hand scatter wind, or make your own, super authentic PAF replica. You could make a fire breathing metal pickup or a early fifties style single coil ... all with high quality/authentic materials.
The cost of this will be piloted at £195.00 per person ... that's about the value of a good set of humbuckers ... so you could see it as a day of fun and instruction with a free set of pickups at the end!
Our workshop is on Leyton High Road, five minutes walk from Leyton tube on the central line. This puts us close to excellent and reasonably priced hotels one stop back up the line at Stratford City.
We hope to start in late July with weekend dates ... if you are interested please PM me.
