    It's a Seymour Duncan. It's pink. It's apparently a neck humbucker, that's all I got.

    I'd been toying with some fun colours to restore my Carvin JB200 model, I was thinking about getting the blue and pink Perpetual burn, but saw this pink humbucker on ebay for £49 ($65) and thought "What the hell?"

    It looked like a legit Duncan, but was listed only as "NJ" and I haven't really figured out what it is yet from online scouring, maybe a 59? But the 59 NJ pickups were all labeled "59NJ" on the back...It's got double hex poles, Full shred maybe?

    Anyway pink neck humbucker, I'll grab a full pink Perpetual Burn for the bridge when Duncan get back to me.

    The front looks like a dimarzio because the logo was removed . It's probably a full shred ?

    I think N stands for neck. And J stands for (Maricela ) Juarez . The famous SD winder who's now in charge of the custom shop

    Looks like a legit duncan so, with that polepieces, must be a Full Shred but... hey! It could be some custom thing or modified polepieces or whatever... I have done several mods to my pickups and it is not difficult so...

    I would say FullShred but take it with a pinch of salt.

    I believe you may be right after checking Duncan's website. This could be a pre 2002 pickup.



    Yea I'm gonna stick with full shred till I can properly try it out, in hindsight it might do very well in the guitar having only bought it on appearance. It's going in a pretty dark guitar so the full shred brightness might help.

    If you have a meter to test the DCR, it would be easier to narrow it down.
