    I recently picked up some pickups on eBay that are supposed to be from a fodera. They will match nicely with my fodera pope preamp I bought last year, if they aren't fakes. They are a little fishy because the logos have been "intentionally obscured" for some reason, and they are 4.625" as opposed to the 4.65" normal 6 string width. The tabs also don't look like the early Anthony Jackson pickup tabs on another thread.

    There were some posters about lane poor pickups that seemed to have a lot of information about the subject. Any advice would be appreciated, if I have to send them back I would be disappointed but better off than hosed!!!

    The picture that you posted don't really allow for the possibility of helping you. Can you pose better quality pictures of both sides?

    It turns out I picked these up from Rob Elrick so I am sure they are the real deal. I am excited to get this Frankenfodera going! Thanks for the response
