So I bought a set of what I thought were EJ custom pickups. What I got is nit what I think it should be. The bridge pickup looks correct but the neck and middle have beveled pole pieces and the little RJ and position marking on the bottom look faked. Smudged etc. and I wrong? Also the seller said he wired position 2 out of phase(his words) but the black wires are all grounded. Thanks guys! I’m

I should correct what I said. It’s EJ markings on the bottom that look wrong. Not RJ

Yep. The bridge I have is like that. The middle and neck have beveled poles. And the EJ is not real looking to me. I can’t figure out how to post pics sorry.

The bridge might be authentic. The middle and neck pickups are not EJs. They look like perhaps Fender Fat 60s Strat pickups.

From the ad:

"This item is sold As-Described and cannot be returned unless it arrives in a condition different from how it was described or photographed."

These pickups arrived in a different condition from how they were described. Two of them are not EJs. Contact Reverb and start a refund request.
