||Need new bobbin vendor|
My current one screwed up an order (gave me REVERSE zebras instead of zebras) and the contact guy has such a thick foreign answer that it's hard to communicate with him.
Doesn't seem to be interested in making it right so I need to look elsewhere -- can anybody help? Would also like a vendor that makes the cream bobbins the right shade. None of this Stew Mac pink/tan thing...

Have you checked out http://www.tonerider.com ?
Andrew sent a price list and picture of the parts he has. They look pretty good. I'm not sure about the shade of the cream bobbin though from looking at the picture.

The cream shade is obviously crucial. Are Allparts cream bobbins decent looking?
I also found a place on the net called Gurian Instruments and they make all kinds of bobbins. E-mailed them and am waiting to hear back.

Allparts is the best dang bobbins I've found. I've seen, wound, and rewound on bobbins from just about every company. I prefer Allparts, although I don't liek the factory polish.
Allparts used to have the pink cream, but switched over to the better looking color awhile back.
I know Gurian very well, since they're close to me. They don't make humbucker bobbins - only single coil.

The All Parts cream does not have a pink hue.

If you navigate www.tonerider.com to English>Humbuckers>High Output Series and look at the double cream Firepower pickup, that's a pretty accurate color match in the photo to the actual color.
We mix the cream color to match a Gibson Historic Les Paul Custom Pickguard...

Andrew, I just noted that you have a statement on your site about the double cream.
You're not in the US if I remember? The Dimarzio Trademark should not apply.
I think your bobbins are probably the only one I haven't wound on. Still hoping to get some samples.
