Can anyone help me identify these pickups? (MEC)

  1. Took them out of a Pnut 1 bass. No need for them anymore so would like to sell them, but I don't know what to list them as....

    Thanks in advance for any replies! 20170512_215637[1].

    Well if they don't have battery wires, you can eliminate everything in that list marked 'active' or 'aktiv'.

    They sure look like the pickups in my corvette fna jazzman. The PUs are passive with an MEC 3-band pre that is bypass-able. The bucker is pretty hot and I run it passive most of the time. The j blended in smooths out the bark of the bridge pu 20170506_162202.

    If the MEC on the pickup is silver then the are passive. Gold means active.

    Didn't they have Seymour Duncans in the Pnut basses? Or was that in the past?
