I spotted an eBay auction for a used DiMarzio X2N. The main reason for the low price on it seems to be (and I quote) "SOME DUNCE CUT THE WIRES SHORT, SO THERE'S ONLY APPROX. 2" OF WIRE." Whaddya think: go for it, or pass it up?
I think it would be a good deal. If you go to my page: www.1728.com/guitar1a.htm and scroll halfway down, you'll see instructions about converting open coil humbuckers from 2 wire to 4 wire. This is really tricky because the wires involved can be as short as ¼ of an inch. If you have 2 inch leads, that's a LOT easier. Incidentally, I'm a big fan of the X2N and that's another reason to get it. Just my opinion.

Precisely why I was after that one. Well, that and the low price. ;D BTW, in doing some Googling on those, I've seen some references to "F-spacing only" and other stuff that says those wide bars will accomodate pretty much any string spacing. My Squier Bullet looks close to the 5.3mm mentioned for F-spacing, so it should work okay, right?
