"Just do like I did. Crack open an old wall wart, extract the transformer and use that as the coil. You can then hide it in the bow and use a metal sewing machine bobbin for decoration on top of the coil. Just make sure there is a magnet inside the…"

Hey mickey,
On burning in fret marks: I find that burning first allows the oil, then lacquer, to highlight the burn marks, and then the lacquer smooths over and protects the line. I have done it afterward, but it leaves a crusty burnt edge to the lacquer, is less protected, and is a more rustic look. That's OK, if that is what you're looking for...
