I'm a hobbiest [sic] guitar builder (more a "guitarpenter" than a "luthier") and I'd like to make some from scratch pickups for the two builds I have going — a bass and a guitar.

I, obviously, am not so conservative but you can rest assured that I wouldn't trust the job to just any guitarpenter.

The word guitarpentry dates to at least 2006, since it appears as part of a person's email address in this posting from June 7, 2006.
