    It's an alnico humbucker.

    Some people will change out the stock pickup for a Nordstrand MM pickup.

    And what's the brand of the stock pickup?
    Is it Seymour Duncan?

    STOCK Ernie Ball StingRay Alnico...
    Unless somebody changed it out...
     
  5. It's their own pickup. They make them in their factory.

    I'm thinking just for curiosity to change the stock pickup.
    Nordstrand mm4.2 or Duncan SMB-4A?
    What are the main differences between them?
     
  7. Is there a reason for it? The EBMM pickup is perfect for the pre-amp and proper Ray tone.
