Does this Lado look original?

I've never seen a Lado with pickups that look like this?
Just wondering if anyone knows if there was a model that was built like this in early 80s?

Not 100% sure, but I used to hang out at Joe's shop in Scarborough when I was a kid and never saw that PU config come out of the shop.

I could be wrong but I bet is was only a P PU or maybe a single coil where the humbucker is.

I have a Lado hanging in my basement that has that exact same pick up configuration including that same humbucker. That said, my bridge is different.

Wow, haven't heard the name Lado mentioned in a really long time.

Handsome bass! Me likey!
Worst pickup line ever: I've got Skittles in my pants. Want to taste the rainbow?

that's a Solo Bass if i'm not mistaken, with a Dimarzio P Bass and a Dimarzio Model G pickup. The Model G is similar to the Model One they still make today.
i think the bass is original.
