got them potted and installed finally... they sound good so far. I think they're a little louder than my other ones, but that may be from magnetizing them, and that's something I can work around.

just playing devil's advocate a bit here - but... 90% or more of the time, wouldn't the amp be matched to the speaker? Shouldn't it be a pretty good estimate to measure the speaker and then back up in ...

really? They said that the amp should be able to deal with the load (of having the 8ohm selected but plugged into a 16ohm cab)... I remember reading someplace that doing that isn't great for the amp, ...

check your solder joint from the pickup to the volume control first - and then make sure you didn't wire your jack backwards (I've done this by accident).

Then check to make sure the volume pot is ...

She's done. I took her to the local repair technician (a place called chicago music exchange, which is a musicians wet dream of a place) just to get a once-over and a good biasing. He found that the r ...

well, the wire I used last time was the same wire I used this time... meaning, same spool that I've had for a year or 2 now since I wound my first set.

I thought the number of turns was more of a ...

I just wound 2 jazzmaster pups on my homemade winder. One is 9200 turns and measures at 8.3k. The other is 9800 turns and measures at a whopping 9.5k.

Usually it's like 8.0 and 8.4 for neck/bridge ...
