Luvely, so you play it upside down then to get the Jimmy tone?

No I'm literally left handed. It's a left handed guitar.

Strung conventionally? So you can play both left and right strung guitars?

Pedal board project:

Idea is to have tuner and 2 of 5 drives on the the top with the carbon copy, with a Gigrig QMX6 on the top level with the GA-FC, 2 CS7's and the other 3 drives on the bottom.

Might bring the top down a little bit and make the sides the same angle/length as the top. Not sure if im going to close in the top or not.

Definitely a prototype. When i get to final idea, i might do it in something other than mdf, but prob will end up being mdf lol.

Also get someone with a table saw to cut it all up, dont think my work bench is all that square lol

I wouldn't worry about it. My table saw isn't that square! Though it is quick :)

Todays winding effort, I have named them George and Mildred for some strange reason, probably from years of british tv abuse.

These are my very first winding efforts, took me 10 years to build the winder lol, now the first born. After a few broken wire attempts I am getting the hang of this I think,...well good enough to not break the wire anyway.

They are approx. 2.5k coils with an A5 magnet in the top half only. The lower coil will be a dummy coil and is reverse wound.

Yes there is mistake on the right hand one, start should have been winder down , not up.

Thanks JP. Yes they are for the 5th and 6th strings of my experimental box guitar (Foodhover Deluxe). Here is the drawing and a quick layout to give you an idea. I will be building my own 6 string pickups based on the jazz master size, but with a P90 design and dummy coils....lots more work to do. Then there is the wiring to think about.
