I have a friends Fender Elite and really dig it. I'm trying to figure out what kind of pickups are in it but there is very little information floating around about these guitars. They appear to be a humbucking pickup of some sort but they don't have the normal looking bobbins or covers. Its a solid molded black housing of some sort. I think they might be Schallers, but I don't know which one's. The sound of these pickups both in humbucking mode and single coil mode is pretty sweet to my ears. I need to find out the details of these pickups as I'm searching for similar pickups for another guitar. How powerful are they? Also, when using the coil tap switch, how are the pickups then wired? I'm thinking the middle position might be yeilding the two split coils in series or something along those lines, but I really have no idea. Anyone who knows anything about these guitars please chime in. Thanks!!
