Best Coils?

What is the best quality coils out there? Stewmac has coils but they were too expensive, so I took a ride with cheap alternatives and was not disappointed.My findings are that coils made by Electriksola and Adept are very quality coils and cheap in the one figure range. 4oz of 42awg will get you around 4 single coil pickups.  Coils by Temco tend to snap a lot and knot up.See More

"I use a mini sanding drum on my dremel until it looks and feels smooth.  I don't always do the half moon thing, I let the wood decide; sometimes it is a curvy square."

"Here is an example of my work. The top piece is my veneer which is a 1/8" thick of birch ply by Revel (yup, like the model kits). I get these at the art store."

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I love guitars of all kinds. Its the sound and tone of them that attracts me. The thing I love more about CBGs, is the nature of building something out of nothing. Taking average, everyday material and creating an instrument that will fly you to the moon and forget about the world. I don't know if the word exists to describe the world of ingenuity CBGs are, but its dank, dirty, garage, gully and best of all, funky.
