    I picked up an 80's Precision and noticed that the pickup pole pieces have tapered off edges. Does anyone know what manufacturer does this, or is this stock for the era? Just curious more than anything.

    That's right. I think the American Vintage reissues have them. I've seen them on the '62 RI.
