Gibson Mandolin Pickup Restoration ( listen to the mandolin wind)

Well, I finally went and did it. I took an old Searcy String Works photo essay of the Gibson Mandolin pickup restoration and made a video about it and posted it on YouTube.

I'll be converting a few more of my old photo essays in time. I'm also planning to do some new ones as I can. Hopefully I will get better at this as I do some more.

Check it out and tell me what you think.

Hey, thanks for posting this video. I have a 69 Gibson EM-150 with the same pickup. It was really cool seeing one get rebuilt.

Now I know who to contact if I need to get it repaired.

Thanks Rick,

I'm very proud of that project. I learned a lot while doing it and it always feels good to bring some dead music history back to life.
