    I'm not sure if I should post here or in the bass section...

    I have a 2009 Skyline JO5 and I'm trying to identify what type of pickups are installed. It was purchased in early 2010 so I assumed they were the Lakland OEM pickups. However now that I have confirmed its an 09' I wonder if they are Fralins... Is there any way to tell?

    Thanks - mike

    To the very best of my knowledge Lakland changed over at the end if 2007-08 my basses a JO5 and a DJ both have Lakland pickups and there ages are 07and 08

    the lakland pickups should have red and black leads on one pickup and green and black on the other iirc. the fralins would be cloth. just pop the control plate off!
