No wide spacing option

(Customer's Reviews)

Nice. But I wonder why StewMac do not offer bobbins with wider polepieces spacing for neck position pickups too.


easy prep work b4 winding

(Customer's Reviews)

minimal sanding to get rid of rough plastic seems that could cut wire while winding. I buy these regularly.


Good, but not enough versatility

(Customer's Reviews)

These bobbins are good quality. However, I bought them for the specific purpose of making double cream pickups. I had to buy 2 sets per pickup because StewMac don't make double cream sets.

It was only after I got them that I realized the cream bobbins only take slugs, not screws (the black bobbins only take screws). So I have to make humbuckers with all slugs, no screws.

I also have to go back and buy more slugs. God only knows how much DHL shipping will cost to Australia for only 6 small bits of metal.
