Basically, it looks like they have same winding and specs.
Here's the photo of the pickup:
Here are my questions: 1. Do you have an idea what type of wire is this? For reference, the spool on the left side (reddish) is a Schatten Poly Nylon which I got from Stewmac. The spool on the right is a Polyurethane Enameled Wire from Aliexpress.
2. What's the best strategy to wind a pickup with the closest possible specs? Do I need to give more priority in achieving the same Ls Inductance?
