    Hey - took the controls off of a heavily modded 1970s Fender Jazz to see if they were original - but I cant be sure. Can anyone shed any light on this? I dont really know what it would say if it was original.

    Here are two (big) pics.

    Thanks for the help in advance!

    No they're not original...they're quite a bit smaller than originals, almost look like what comes in an EMG kit. Also the brass shielding plate at the bottom of the control cavity is also missing.
