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.

Verified Buyer

I recently bought this little jewel of a machine to wrap pickups ... I was satisfied, except for the display
that it is hard to look at it during processing.
In my opinion the display had to be thought of better, by applying a larger one and having a wider view during winding.
whereas the car is not cheap
