I don't know if that's red forbon or what. The pickup in there is just one of the old ones (sans pickup cover) that was in the guitar when I got it. I'm scrapping them for the alnico rods, but I figured I'd wire 'em up before I broke 'em down. The forbon-like material is kind of woody, almost like a thin particle board. Reminds me a bit that perforated tool-hanging backboard material -- you know what I'm talking about. I haven't used forbon, but from what I've heard I think it's more plasticy.  
As for the bridge, yeah, true, but I don't want to waste a good bridge on test equip.
