Your pickups look really nice and sound good from the demo videos I've seen/heard. I may need to use one on a future build. CBN is a great way to find folks making stuff like this. Thanks.

Hey Skeesix, I received my prewired pickup and jack yesterday. Fast delivery. Thank you very much for the directions, too.

Great job. Thanks again.

Skeesix, the pickup on your slide guitar instructionarl video sounds nice & crisp. Whats your secret? Do you have a decent amp? (All I have is a crappy Honeytone...)
