GAD... I really enjoyed the videos illustrating the process of pickup winding. Thanks for posting! For a Guild connection, check out video #2 of the ThroBack Shop Tour where he details the Leesona 102 Coil Winder. Apparently, Rowe Industries of Toledo, OH bought one of these machines in 1959 for making DeArmond pickups. According to Hans' book, that's around the time that Guild started featuring DynaSonics on their archtop guitars.
Also, check out the callus on the forefinger of Abigail Ybarra! That's 50 years of guiding a thin strand of copper wire, while applying the proper amount of tension.
