    Looks pretty hacked. What is it, two 4-string pups put together?

    According to headstock and bridge, it's a pre-EB.
    Gorgeous one, BTW.
     
  8. I'm assuming it's one of Leo Fender's experiments with pickup design. Since he went from a single polepiece under each string to dual polepieces to reduce the attack on the early Precisions, presumably this is a test of that same approach with the early Stingray.

    Definitely pre-EB...


    That fused p/up would have made James Clerk Maxwell proud, must have a force-field like a Star Trek space ship!

    Just for your information, Leo Fender did not design the MusicMan preamps or amps. It was Tommy Walker.

    I thought for a second that Musicman and Wishnevski had joined forces.
