Fender 60's Finish Color Chart & More from Curtis Novak

Fender Finish Color ChartPickup guru & all around custom guitar tweaker Curtis Novak created and painted these blocks, displayed at his website along with Fender's associated classic color names you all should get acquainted with.

When you're up to speed on all those colors (and there'll be a quiz tomorrow), check out the rest of the site for tasty tidbits about pickup design going back to the old days of Leo and similar radio electronics golden agers.

Novak explains the benefits of "scatterwinding", why vintage style staggered pole pickups aren't necessary today and another cool way to set pickup height. All of that and more!

I discovered Novak via the Guitar Collecting blog-- another must site to check out!!
