a STK-S4 neck came in today. it just has the black and the white and the bare. thinking I'd seen something about them being a 3-wire pup, I looked up the wiring and it shows there should a red wire.

it is the neck, not the middle. and the place for the red wire appears totally untouched and there no indication it might have once been there and somehow removed. it meters at 8.84k, which is a tad low, but not out of bounds.

is this normal?
