Peavey Wolfgang Pickup

Here's a Peavey Wolfgang bridge humbucker I got in for a repair. These guitars were built by Peavey for Eddie Van Halen from late 1996 through the end of 2004. Seems one of the coils is dead in this pickup so I'll be doing a rewind on it. The good coil reads 7K
so that's what we need to wind the new coil too. The pickup also has a ceramic magnet. The most unusual aspect of these pickups would be the little solder lugs built into the bottom flange of the bobbins. It really helps to clean things up in the soldering department. One other little detail that is interesting is that the base place it black so that it doesn't stand out so much when used without a pickup ring.

Peavey states all these used a alnico 5 magnet?
