Anyone Know What Pickups Are on the CURRENT Stings?

    When Fender Japan, which manufactures nothing in-house, contracts out construction of its SCPB models ('51RI, '54RI/Sting), different batches seem to wind up with different pickups. Some are US Duncan "Basslines" and some are "vintage," whatever that means. There seems to be at least three different SCPB pickups in use.

    Does anyone know what pickups were used on the 2002 batch of Stings, or how to identify them? The A & D poles are raised on this pickup, which I understand is not the case with some of the SCPB pickups FJ contractors have used.

    As always, thanks for any help.
