    Its kind of maroon flaky dry crap that isnt doing anything as the pickup is very microphonic and squealy. Obviously it has expired...

    The wax got a little hot. Maybe after the pickup was installed.

    Taste it and let us know. Could be microphonic candy as Koreans were big on that in the 80-90's.
