Second Edition by Dan Erlewine
Erick Coleman has a 50-year-old pickup that's nearly dead: It's making a little bit of sound, but not much. Erick opens it up to find the trouble, and we get a good view of the guts of this vintage Fender pickup before he rewinds it.

About the pickup in this video: This is a 1966 Fender Telecaster pickup, made during the years when the company wax-potted some pickups but not others. This one has no wax potting; so the string wrap and coil wire come off easily.
