Re: Pop Quiz
"I'd wondered whether you guys account for the customer's preference in strings when custom winding."  
I do, most of the time anyway. (Sometimes I forget to ask.)

I'm not afraid to be wrong ;^)  
1. b maybe, but is usually conbined with more scatter so it's hard to isolate  
2. b  
3. b maybe...seems like it "shouldn't" affect the inductance directly but maybe indirectly since inductance is a measurement of a coils ability to generate current.  
4. a  
5. a...if I recall correctly, the last one I had wasn't alot taller than a HB coil.
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

The Hummer's answers.  
1 b. and maybe muddier, probably more "vintage"  
2.a, and nF will increase too.  
3.b - the extech says so, no idea why.  
4.a/b smack in between, I'd say, but I can't afford a real PAF, and would be shit scared it was a Japanese fake anyway.  
5.a - ditto the prices/fake issues with 4.
