    Hi everybody.

    A case for Fenderism Professors.
    I bought a 1991 mim J. The previous owner put on it a couple of SD Quarter Pounders and an EMG tone circuit: I like these mods, but that's not the point.
    The man gave me the stock pups too: while packing my things up, I found them in a box, and now I wonder what kind of pups they may be. All I know is that they are the same size neck and bridge.
    Does anybody have a cue about them?

    Thanks in advance.

    Some kind of cheap import pickups. Probably from Korea. Might be made by D&G pickups, which also make EMG Select.

    the worst of the worst; toss them in the trash with extreme prejudice.

    Well, thanks a lot.
    Anyway I wouldn't put them back on: I was planning to get some DiMarzio Ultra J (I have Model J on another bass and they sound great, maybe a little too "fat" for the sound I'd like to get from this bass).
