    You're welcome for the Most Exciting and Most Chilled-Out (although they kind of sound contradictory) nominations!

    How are you?

    Can't claim to be an expert (yet), but my basic understanding going off what I've read and what I remember about magnets and electricity from high school physics is that essentially you've got magnets, the ends of which are actually at the top of the pickup under the strings, and those have a fairly thin gauge of copper wire wound around them a few thousand times. When the metal strings move through the magnetic field over the magnets they produce electric current in the copper wire which is what gets sent to the pots and eventually the amp.

    Making them is pretty simple apparently. Not much more to it than having the magnets set in place and winding the wire, though the winding pattern, wire gauge, and how many winds you do would all have an impact on the ultimate sound.

    I'm planning to start with single coils since they're supposed to be a bit easier. I'll probably test them in the middle position on my Ibanez with the goal of eventually replacing that one and maybe upgrading the tele's pickups. Then I'll start practicing with some humbuckers to see how that goes. Building a pickup winder will be the first thing on the list though. Found an instructable for one that can be built for under $200 if you get decent prices on the parts. Otherwise I'd have to wind by hand and I've heard that's damn near impossible without breaking the wire, and extremely tedious even if you don't.

    I think I've decided on my next project. I want to start making guitar pickups because it's one of the few instrument related things I can make from scratch at my parents.

    Curse you and your world traveling ways! Now who shall I play co-op with?! It actually is really fun. Basically you play two teams of four who are fighting the computer opponents, but each team is competing to get the highest score. Whichever team does get the highest score can get some more credits and better drops. Only thing I wish is that the game had more fuel drops, but it's not too bad for the most part. I've yet to run out, though some lengthy gaming sessions left my fuel stock a bit low.

    And the guitar I got is one of these:

    Ibanez Gio. It may be an entry model, but I like the way it feels and plays, and the finish is exactly what I wanted. It's newly restrung and I'll be breaking it in with some Rocksmith in a bit.

    Did you ever get around to playing any Ace Combat Infinity? Been playing the last few days and it's actually pretty good.

    So I finally updated my progress on the guitar. God I'm slow.

    Hahaha, if I am your teacher, I won't mind having your doodles on my textbook! What did your teacher said to you?

    So which means you are a nature artist! My respect to you! I really like your artworks when I come visit occasionally!

    Thank you for liking my works. They are outrageous and nonsensical by nature.

    Did you like doodle all over your textbooks and tables when you were in school?

    "Seriously" means you started attending art school or something?
