Can't drive them til tomorrow because I'm out of town. But they do look nice and my guitar guy says they sound ridiculous (in a good way, of course)

What a bloody copy cat I really like your top, especially those 'horizontal' grain lines.

They look lovely, let us know how you like them once you get a chance!

Bought!
Most I have paid for pups but if they are as good as they sound then well worth it!
Didn't get the 4 conductor however.

Just shout if you want to change, I should be winding them sunday evening Udonitron.

Thanks everyone for the positive comments and feedback, I should be participating more on the forum, however you are all keeping me busy in the workshop and on occasion figiting with the postal service and letting them know that Mexico is not North Carolina.

I have decided to extend the offer, at least for another while, not sure how long I can sustain current prices but I will advertise at the very least a week ahead of any increases.

However I do want to say that whenever I do increase prices, existing customers should contact me before buying again and I will ensure you get some generous discount.

I am also pleased to announce that Mitch is now officially an endorsee of Deacci Pickups, and I want to just say a special thanks to him for believing in them and giving me the kick in the arse to start getting the pickups out there again.

Above all, enjoy the pickups, I hope they inspire you !!!!

Cheers mate, much appreciated.
Do you think the phase option is wasted with a reg 2 condutor wire?
Sure I won't have the option to put it back to in phase in the middle position and I hear your pups are awesome in all positions so it is a toss up I suppose, yeah?

It is wasted with with braid as the only way to reverse the polarity is to flip the magnet round, easy enough job on uncovered Pickups but a right pain on covered.

I believe the original green rewound neck had a 2 wire +shield in a normal insulated jacket, which meant it could just as easily have been set up to switch between normal and out of phase.

4 wire is useful for coil taps, and while it is all down to personal choice, coil tapping a Humbucker with a resistance measurement anything under 12k yields a pretty weak sounding single coil sound in my opinion. I'm not a fan of coil tapping, but then Mr Page didn't do too bad with his setup either, so who am I to say one way or the other

to help with your choice of lead wire in a green faze set,, I would put insulated 2 wire on the neck to give the option to do reverse phase easily, either on a switch or with a very simple wire change in the control cavity,......However if you want 4 wire on both, then I promise I won't get upset with you about the single coil taps it's all really down to personal choice.

Oh you think with the braided it is pointless?
I mean the reverse winding on the neck would still produce the out of phase on the middle position, which is what I want.
The 2 conductor plus shield on Greens must have still been a 2 grounds and a live or did each conductor go to a coil?
Definitely don't need the coil tap, they are fun but didn't use mine much.
I am so confused now Declan haha, help me Obi Wan.
