I've started messing with the bridge pickup from a Dot. It's a decent pickup to start with so I swapped the magnet for an alnico 4, put real nickel slugs and screws in, mounted it on a Chrome nickel frame instead of the stock brass. Haven't potted it yet. It reads about 8.5k.
I'd like to ask the experts, if I add some winds to the pickup (I have the wire, I know the process) to make it a bit hotter would it work the way I'm thinking or would it have some noticeable degradation since the winds came so far after/are not the exact same wire?
