    can you take a picture of the underside of the pickups and with the covers off?
     
  3. I'll try to do that on Monday, didn't bring them home for the weekend.

    i think those are Seymour Duncans
     
  6. Nope, they're DiMarzios. Can't tell from the pic, but inside of covers is stamped DiMarzio U.S.A.

    hmmm weird. Are they humbuckers?
     
  8. I believe they're single coils, but to be honest, I don't know enough about PUPs to know for sure.

    theyre not dimarzios. the covers are removable like any other cover. i have a set of pickup covers in my parts bin that are stamped dimarzio.

    with poly leads? they could be anything. a pic of the coil might help.
     
  11. Well, seeing as how they were untouched for over 25 years, I'm 99.9999% positive they are DiMarzios. These were the original PUPs in my custom bass that I bought in 1986. I only swapped them out a few months ago to go for a different sound. Otherwise, they've been untouched since the bass was built.

    by the way, I believe these are duncans. DiMarzios would have 4 wires....
     
  16. Nope, they're not Duncans.

    Vintage DiMarzios have green, black and white wires
     
  19. Thanks for that info Fred, I'll take a look at them & see if that's the case with these.
    These were in my bass that was made in around '85 or '86, so would that fall into the "Vintage DiMarzio" time period u were thinking about?

    Yes, what did they come out of? Also, i thought the DiMarzios were sealed with wax duo the covers wouldn't be able to come off?
