    I just bought a '97 MIA Precision that has a Bartolini pickup. I like the tone a lot and would like to know which of the 3 that they sell (it's passive so as far as I see the choices are 8S, 8ST, & 8SU) this one is. Can someone tell me how to do that?

    Thanks

    I thought they had some sort of indicator on the underside of one of the pup units... however, I'd be willing to wager its an 8S.

    Yeah, to know for sure you'll have to unscrew the pickup, and on the bottom of one of the units you should find the designation scratched onto the copper plate.
