    Are the 85-15 pickups on the 24-08 standard 85-15 or do they tap the way that the 408 pickups do??

    Thank you. However, it’s not clear to me how or if those difffer from the standard 85-15 pickups, aside from switching that allows each to be tapped separately.
    What I’m curious about, is if they are designed with that “turn borrowing” functionality in the 408s, which minimizes output drop

    Yes, they work just like the 408 pickups.
