    I have a WCR Darkburst that I found in a box of stuff I've had for a few years. I can't recall if it is a neck or bridge pickup.......How does one tell if it is a neck or bridge DB ?

    Thanks in advance !

    There should be a blue or a red mark on the back of each. Red is bridge if memory serves, but you might want to double-check that.

    Should be a stripe drawn in Sharpie against one of the baseplate legs.

    Red=Bridge
    Blue=Neck

    I think it's time Wagner invests in a label maker, $30 at Staples.
    Sharpies just don't cut it when you've got 20 in stock and you've misplaced the Ziploc baggie they come in. C'mon Jim...your pickups are awesome, let's upgrade the packaging/identification will ya?! :p
