That’s funny, “simulated hand wound.” Picture a dude sitting there for days just thinking about sitting there for DAYS winding THOUSANDS of turns of wire around each of these with his bare hands. Now actually do it. “hand wound pickups” are farther fetched than the true bypass myth. Machines wind pickups. Case closed.
