Title: I'm Ash, maker of Oil City Pickups
Post by: OilCityPickups on September 13, 2013, 11:59:16 AM
Hi everyone ... and hi to a couple of friends I know here from another place :) I'm Ash, and I manufacture Oil City Pickups http://www.oilcitypickups.co.uk (http://www.oilcitypickups.co.uk)
I've been a pro and semi pro muso since the seventies, and come from a long line of engineers, so it was fairly natural that I'd wind up making things that made music! Nowadays I'm a full time professional pickup winder with a fairly extensive range of products, and many regular customers. If anybody want's any questions answered on pickups in general, pickup winding, or ... lordy forbid ... my own products, I'm always about ... though getting more and more busy these days.
I have just got back into a regular band after five years of not gigging, and I am a self confessed gear hound ... with a penchant for Telecasters, Ibanez semi acoustics ... and ... well just about anything with strings (14 guitars on racks in the lounge and still counting - while grovelling to an understanding wife).

Ash, that would be fantastic if you could do any of those. Either articles or how to's would be extremely welcome.  The site does have an article system, which you should find a submit article link down the left hand side of the front page.  Or if you prefer you can just add them as regular posts in the forums.  It's entirely up to you.  ;)

Thanks.  :tup:
