This old Silvertone 1420L came into the shop missing a bridge and with a dead bridge pickup. I made a replacement adjustable bridge and set about rewinding the pickup.
These Silvertone pickups are commonly known as “Hershy Bar Pickups”. They can be quite a challenge to rewind because the windings are supported only on one side. I had to make a temporary support on the outside of the bobbin/magnet to allow for winding and then remove the temporary support without damaging the coiled wire. It took a couple of attempts to perfect the process but I finally managed to get the pickup wound and reassembled. I was unable to save the original rivets so I had to turn a replacement set on my Sherline metal lathe.
