A pick up has a magnet with metal poles and thin copper wire wrapped around the poles, this creates a field that the guitar string interupts and makes a sound. The copper wire winding is the coil, the likes of fender strats tend to habve single coils ie one set of pole pieces with one set of windings, a humbucker has two sets of poles and two sets of windings side by side. You could google it for more info.


Ah bollox, pipped at the post lol

I'm not saying not to trust the internet, but there's an alarming discrepancy between the number of iPads I've won & the number of iPads I own.

Depends whether they're single or married. The single ones scream soul and bl00z but the married ones are only for death metalz.

Oh, absolutely.

You can't play death metal with single coils, and you can't play blues with humbuckers.

It's the law.

Look at me, look at me
hands in the air like it's good to be
ALIVE
and I'm a famous rapper
even when the paths're all crookedy
I can show you how to do-si-do
I can show you how to scratch a record
I can take apart the remote control
And I can almost put it back together?

Gozd in gora poj,

staro pravdo v mrak tulimo,
