    Hey guys, I'm new here and I came here cause I recently ran into a old Electra Super Rock 2254. Guitar sounds and play amazingly but I have no clue what are those pick ups and the neck pick up sounds pretty boss so I'm very curious to know what pick up it is.

    This is terrible... Apparently, one of the little wires that is between the toggle switch and volume knob on my JEM has broken off the knob side. I loosened the strings and pulled up the pick guard to take a look, and I couldn't even identify where it had broken off from! It is coming out...
