I've always wondered this, and really have found nothing on it, nothing worth reading anyway. What is the difference in pickups? I mean, theres all sorts of different kinds, and styles and such, what are the differences in them? Does anyone have any information on this, or any websites that explain this?
some have more/less windings in them, and they all sound different. the magnetic core can be made from different material, changing the type of sound ect...
