Hey, here's a question I haven't seen answered anywhere yet.

I recently picked up a pickup advertised as a Dimarzio super 2; a vintage one at that... (which seems to be true since it has the old braided wire -- I read somewhere that means it's pre 1979.) Anyway, the thing is, it's only got 2 black and white leads coming out of this braiding... which leads me to wonder: Do 2-conductor super 2's even exist? It does read in the low 8s and high 7s for resistance.

If someone knows for sure please chime in!

Just an update. The seller said Dimarzio ID'd the pickup as a Super 2. Dimarzio wrote me back saying only "It appears to be authentic" So just be warned apparently they do exist. I presume most people hear will want to be able to split them etc. So make sure you get all 4 wires.
