    About six years ago I reached out on this forum regarding pro winders and who produced some of the best custom wound PUPs (of course for a Strat) around. A guy by the name of Mike in Austin (?) Texas was given a resounding thumbs up and I bought a set from him. They are by far the BEST sounding PUPs I’ve ever heard or had. This being said, I wanted to order another set now and have searched all of my email history trying to find him and I can’t. Thus, the million dollar question ... anybody know who I’m talkin about, and if you drop a name or business name I know I’ll recognize it. Thanks for reading and any help is appreciated.

    Just spitballing here, but I read about them last week and they’re based in Austin.

    If you communicated on the forum, the info is still here. Search will find it.

    C. M. Daugherty maybe? I know he used to live in TX, but not sure if it was/is in Austin.

    Austin Vintage Guitar?

    Was it just a guy that did it at his house or did he have a brick and mortar?
