    I just removed one and swapped in a SD Classic Stack Jazz pup.

    The stock pup tone isn't bad, I just wanted to mess around with my beater.

    Has anyone here taken a good look at the stock Essex pup from China? I'm just curious about how they're designed and what their specs might be.

    I did see they're built with seperate pieces for the E/A and D/G strings.

    Anyone know anything about them or has anyone tested them for D.C. resistance/resonant peak?

    Just curious.

    Oh, one other thing: they're set in the covers with parafin wax.:confused:
