I only still own one of these
Here's another shot of Lenore.
I put a Dynasonic in my old Humbucker Strat and all I can say is WOW!
Some other singles
Some super-old MIJ examples.
Douglas something-or-other. BIG honkin' neck. I prolly would have thrown in the towel if this was my first electric!
Zenon ZES-60. Jazzmaster (Mustang?) goes Jetsons.
MIJ Schaefer. Actually, it has a very nice neck and fret work, and a genuine old school gold foil pickup doesn't hurt! I just noticed the Burns Bison vibe on the horns.
Got a few.
Prolly? What is a prolly??
My lazy way of saying "probably."
Two from the Dano department:
Oh, now I get it. Sometimes, I'm a little slow on the uptake......
Ghidora... In a former life it was a pink first act guitar. Then i attacked it with a lack of skills.

Ahh, no worries my friend. You're in good company!
LTD Viper 301 painted up with neck pickup removed.
My single pup collection - all projects/ partcasters except the sunburst Gordon Smith GS1-60, which is pretty much as it left the factory (although has a few scars and scuffs).
I turned this HSH into a single humbucker guitar for a simple no thrills punk rock guitar. Had a Seymour Duncan custom shop SH-5 made for it with an AlNiCo 8 for the magnet instead of the ceramic as well as dual hex poles.
at San Jose, CA:
I saw Jared James Nichols (on promo tour) & His New Epiphone Les Paul!
at GC a couple of years ago pre-launch of his guitar and a new amp too.
Here he is on Andertons interview recently with guitar ... new color?
Love it! I still intend on someday doing a First Act project guitar
Some years ago when I was looking to change pups in my fender bass, squier bass and a couple teles and strats, I came upon the name Bill Lawrence. As I looked into his products, I ordered some pups. When I got them there was a blue witre on them and no blue matching wire on my guitar. So I called, the lady that answered told me that if you have no link, just tie it off. I said okay, she said here is Bill, would you like to talk to him. I said sure?!
He had an accent and sounded like Henry Kissinger. He is a jazz guitarist, an avid one pup advocate, he said having more than one makes a player lazy. The guitar sounds are not just pups, they only pick up what you lay down. He said where you play the guitar, neck position, body position and how you attack the strings are much more important than how many pick ups you have. And the original post is right, they do interfere with each other, magnetic fields do interact, that is why the Earth has one "pup." Now me not being a virtuosos I still have pick ups as per style and design.
Bill Lawrence went on to explain the physics of sound and music, he is a physicist and sounds like one. He teaches the physics of sound and I asked him if he had some written material. He said it is all in equations and theoretical expressions. I learned a lot that day, he talked with me about an hour.
Here's one of mine-Framus Hollywood, modified from 3 to single s to single sliding pickup version as I had back in the 1960s
