    I ve recently acquire a 2nd hand bass come with dimarzio will power middle pu.When I open up the pick up guard I found the poles of this pu is not sealed and just a layer of foam is paste onto it.

    I am wondering is this thing a fake or sth?I had EMGs and DUNCUN and they all come well sealed.

    another thing with this pu is tt it is damn noisy?Is there anything I can do about it?Thanks in advance

    those aren't poles as they're not magnetic. As far as I know they're just spacers. Anyway, they're exposed with nothing covering them. Just reverse the wiring in one coil to make them hum-cancelling - ie. for series pigtail the black and white leads.
  3. I bought a new Will Power Middle and dropped it into my MIM-P. It is not noisy at all. I did not open it open for inspection, so cannot comment on that.

    Mine appears very well made and gives me no trouble. I have it wired with a series/parallel switch.
