    Does anyone know whether these pickups are stock or custom wound. If stock, what model?

    Thanks in advance for any responses.

    FWIW:

    you're basically at the mercy of the manufacturer to be straight up here and that's who I'd be asking. Probability is if it was a stock pup they would list it as such or as an option as such.
     
  3. I took one lesson from Tom and played his bass. I could swear that they were Barts on it. Could be wrong, it's been a while.

    In general the duncan pick ups Fodera uses are not their stock model but something special they do for Fodera.
     
  5. One thing a am certain of is that his pickups did not have exposed poles like the signature model I've seen pictures of. I remember thinking that it was uncommon for Fodera to use Bartolini pu's.

    Fodera offers non exposed pole Duncuns.

    Don't contact Fodera, contact Seymour Duncun's custom shop and ask them.
     
  7. No worries. You're probably right. Tom has moved, otherwise I'd call and ask him.
