    Has anyone ever found drop in replacements pickups for these???
  2. If you have the 2nd generation, get a 1st generation set of pickups or look for Blacktop Precision pickups:

    How can I tell the Gen?? I just picked this thing up Friday. Traded for an FSR fretless that just wouldn't sell on Craigslist. The dual humbucker was too tempting
  4. look at the pole pieces
    2nd gen has fake pole pieces & only 4 per slice
    the 1st gen. has 8 pole pieces per slice & they're real

  6. Those pickups should be just fine. I had a Blacktop Precision with the same & it sounded just like a Fender, only with more oomph.

    Take a look at the value of the pots in there. They should all be 500K Ohm.

    I played it for about 15 minutes after I strung it up. Sounds good enough but you never know what's out there. I've got a real love for the fender custom shop pickups.
