Helps identifying spectrum mx pickup

Post by bjjool on Sun Jan 21, 2018 5:40 pm

Hi from France, 


I'm trying to identify a mx pickup, and after reading the ubc article I'm still a little confused. Maybe the language barrier.
I've got some pics of this pickup :






Is this the bad one as described in the article?
Any help would be appreciated. 
Thanks for this great website!

Bjjool, if you are ever in doubt a multimeter will confirm one way or another. The real MMK45's measure around 11-14 KΩ. The "crappy" UBC's will show about 6 KΩ

Thanks guys your help is really appreciated. 
The thing is the mx is a guitar on sale, the  guy has mounted it with a Seymour tb5 and the price is a little bit high, he's ok to sell it stockfor less , but I'll have  to change the pickup anyway if Its the crappy one.
I'll try to ask for measurement as Barry said.

Thanks again!
