    After doing some research, I find I have one of the older, non hum-cancelling neck pups.

    I just called MTD and was informed that the Koreans haven't been able to produce a hum-cancelling version of the neck pup. I was told by the gentleman who answered the phone (Mike Tobias?) that my options were to have a Bartolini installed (would need to have the pickguard routed out) or join the waiting list for the new pups. No ETA on those.

    Well, at least he's honest. Seemed like a nice enough guy.

    way back in 2003 I tried an heir, and found the single coil neck pup a deal breaker. Michael Tobais told me then they were working on a humbucker for the neck, but I haven't seem one since.

    Don't look for their website for help either, they still list the Dark cherry burst color as "coming in late 2003"

    LOL
