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.

    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.
