Pickups in my Greco EG 500 Super Real

Post by Midblake68 » Wed Oct 30, 2019 7:49 am

Hey guys.

I am brand new to the forum and to owning my first Greco which is a 1979 Greco EG 500 Super real. Fantastic guitar with great feel and sound that is currently being refinished in Nitro.

My question is regarding the pickups. Since she is being refinished she is stripped and I took a closer look at her pickups which I assumed were Maxon U-1000's but up further inspection they look nothing like them. When I tried to peel the unsoldered back off of the pick up I found a strange configuration inside that was inundated with wax and does not look like your typical pickup mounting situation.

I included some photos incase anyone wants to take a look because I have never seen anything like it and I am really curious as to what they are.

Cheers fellas,
