    Im doing a build and am wondering if there are suggestions for any small company or single man operations that make good hand wound pickups. anybody that does good vintage sounding pickups. I would rather (a: be unique and (b: support a smaller operation rather than buy some fender or Seymour Duncan pickups that everyone and their mother has on their Strat.

    I have Don Mare pickups in my Strat (White-0-Tones) and my Tele (Hayrides) and love them!

    Shop on reverb called Bullfrog Instruments. Fantastic hand wound vintage Strat pickups. Nice features on his pickguard builds like a blender pot, treble bleed and vintage capacitors. I have purchased two sets of pups/loaded pickguards.

    I would reccomend Bodean too. Another couple really good winders are River Pickups and Alexander Pribora. You can Google them both.
