Owen Specs of Early Joe Barden Single Coils
Anyone know what sort of output these had, types of wire and magnets? Was it a blade magnet or polepieces? I can't find much info on them - or even when they started being produced and stopped being produced. Your expertise is much appreciated!

The dimensions follow.  
Joe Barden is back in business again and you may want to contact him directly <http://www.joebarden.com>  
 
Bridge Blade:  
2.375''wide, .734''@center, .0625" thick (16ga.)  
magnet 2.440"length x.255"wide x .175" thick  
probably C5 ceramic  
 
total inductance:  
2.420 H @ 1 kHz  
2.401 H @ 120 Hz  
 
Rdc=4.436kOhm @ 69F  
estimated winds per coil: 2400 winds #43 single build  
 
Note that the bridge pup blade is shorter than the magnet because the neck pup is angled for blade stagger.  
 
Neck blade:  
2.125" width, .7315"@center, .0625" thick  
magnet 2.125" length, .222"wide .222" height  
probably C5 ceramic  
 
total inductance:  
2.491 H @ 1 kHz  
2.477 H @ l20 Hz  
 
Rdc= 4.125 kOhm @ 69F  
estimated winds per coil: 2475 winds #43 single build.  
 
Blades are electrically connected under the magnet  
by copper foil, attached to bare wire ground.
