I have a Combustion v4 and the guy I bought it from told me he upgraded the pickups to the "Canadian ones" instead of the ones that came in it. Seems like he said $350 upgrade.

I am wondering what I really have in there? How can I tell? Is there a number or anything on the back that would differentiate upgraded pickups from the stock ones?

Thanks,

Kirk

My guess would be to simply pull one out and look at the back side. There is probably an identifying label on there. Stock V4 pickups would have been FD-3N.

I was under the impression that all the pickups were Canadian ones and that there are just different models and pickup shapes.

You know, I was think earlier that I had read the same thing but I couldn't remember where or confirm I did not mention that. But you may be right on with this.

I took them both out and mine say:
FD-3 4L (SS) B (bridge)
FD-3 4L (SS) N (neck)

There are two check boxes B and N.

Are these the P-Tone Pickups?

They're not the P-tones, but they are upgraded from the stock FD-3N. The FD-3 4Ls are used in the Afterburner series.
