Will be waiting to hear what it sounds like.

Cool, thanks for the help Don

Pretty cool Scott.  Something to keep in mind.  I found that with ceramics, less winds is more.  Those bars are stronger than an alnico and so to keep them from getting harsh, I wind them lighter than most single coils I do.
