    Hey all,

    I've got an SX fretless and was wondering about changing the pickups if a good set came up. Does anyone have an opinion on these?

    Thanks in advance.

    Those pickups are the "Duncan Designed" ones that Fender has used in a variety of instruments. I presume by the name that Seymour Duncan does not manufacture them, as to what role Seymour and his company had in the "design" I don't know. I mean it could have been anything. $40 is not a bad price for a set of stock Squier pickups but it's not a screaming great deal either.

    Those are some pretty good sounding pickups.
    Very similar to SD Basslines vintage.
    They are made in Korea, and don't have all of the "hand-made" qualities of the USA SD's.
  4. Those are the pickups that came off a Squier VMJ, and he states it in his ad.

    Those are not Seymour Duncan pickups, just designed by Seymour Duncan.
    Basically they are Squier pickups.

    If you are interested, i actually have the neck pickup from one of those sets lying around, if you want to buy just the one pickup.
