'tuned vibrators of magnetic material'! At least he is covered for the day someone uses his design for the electric zither!
All that contract style blurb is hell to me. The hours of work that must go into that sort of thing just spell a bigger kick to give yourself when someone uses your design in the one possible instance you didn't contrive to forsee.
I do prefer the typeface and hand-drawn diagrams of the '38 patent though. Does that make me a hopeless retrophile?

newey, are you suggesting that cloth covered wire does not give a vintage tone? And if so, I think you should take this up with Dirk Wacker, from Premier Guitar dot Com. (You can't use black beauties without vintage cloth wire!)

I'm not suggesting it, I'm stating it. As I (and others) have said before, a piece of wire either has continuity or it doesn't. If it doesn't, then it will affect your tone adversely, since you won't have any output, and thus, no tone whatsoever.
Mr. "Dirk Wacker" 's article (in quotes because I can't believe that's not a pseudonym ) from Premier Guitar was discussed at some length here a while back, but I can't seem to find the link right now. If he wasn't kidding about the cloth wire, then yes, I disagree.
And I haven't used Black Beauties since I was cramming for finals in college.
