I soldered new pickups on my guitar. I knew it would be an improvement from the 30 years old, bad quality, rusted pickups, but I didn't know it would be THAT much better!


know comes the more annoying but important question...what to do with the old pickups? Is there anything to help these being recycled into something useful?

@electret i always wondered if it would be possible to create a kind of resonator/ spring reverb with a box, some strings, a pickup and a speaker.

@jameschip oh...I actually might have _all_ the part around the house already :o might try that out! (also, I have some long springs I could use them for this)

@electret I know you can somewhat make a "kick" with a bass pickup and something to stomp on, but I don't know if it'll work with guitar pickups. I don't think so...
