Name That Pickup
|lundborg ||12-03-2013 08:39 AM |
It looks like a Gibson bass bridge pickup, and some residue on the bottom suggests that there could have been a PAF sticker.
But then again I think Gibson PUs usually had a braided wire, so I don't know... There might have been variations, or it might have been replaced.
Maybe someone else knows more about aftermarket PUs (or e.g. close Japanese clones) in the '70s?

It could be 60s or 70s vintage, since it had a 65 pbass neck.

It could be a rewound Gibson. The hookup wire looks replaced at some point. I'm not sure if Gibson ever put a radius on their pickup surrounds like the one you can see in picture two. Even the flat-head screws check out.

Looked some old Gibson EB pix, the surround appears to be made for an archtop, so that rules out the eb3, but there was a 2-pup version of the semihollow EB-2 that it might fit (EB-2d). But the wire doesn't match other pups of this type.
Thanks for all who provided clues.

Don`t forget all the generic hollow body basses from that era. Mostly violin bass style. I have an old Aria with guitar sized humbuckers in it.
