I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee

good prices also - you would get a good 5-7 4 string pickups form this spool of wire
the only other place i know of is Stewmac in the usa !!
No problem mate
Why not try making your own pickups ? - dont know if you have looked at my photos of the pickups i have made - should give you a idea how to go about making one - it's easier than you would think !!.
glad you like my CBG'S
Yes another brit and a Yorkshire man - come and join the Brits Are Coming Group !

hope this helps
