    Hello all. I'm fairly new here. Been lurking a bit. Here goes.

    I picked up this 84 Ibanez Roadstar II over the weekend.
    The original owner modded it some.
    Badass bridge I (I have to file down. Action a bit high)

    And added these rail PUPS up by the neck.
    I'm not complaining. They sound phenomenal. I just would like to know what I'm working with.
    Along with the PUPS he added a two way and a 5 way switch.

    Now they look like the Joe Barden Rickenbacker PUPS. But when I compare them to the models online they are very close but not an exact match. These may be an older model. Mine have rounded corners at the ends. The ones online are square.

    Can someone shed some light?
    Thanks in advance.
