    These came installed in a bass that I just bought for a refin.

    This is the only pic I have so far so I do not know the color of the wire.

    Only clues are cloth wire and that sticker with the number 1 on it. White covers may or may not be original. Who knows?

    My guess would be Seymour Duncan SPB-1

    Thanks. I was thinking the same thing as I saw a set of Antiquities with a similar sticker with a 1a on it.

    Ants would have a baseplate.

    The SPB-1's do not...as far as I know.

    It really bothers me that the pickup makers don't mark or label their products!

    When I get a set of pickups, or remove a set, I use my electric engraver to mark them on the side of the cover. I know I will never remember which is which a year down' the road.

    I agree.

    I usually toss them in a bag and label the bag but when I get a used bass with aftermarket pickups, it is a real pain to ID them sometimes.

    True. But I have never seen this crowd stumped yet! This is a bunch that can ID just about anything. That being said, your point is valid.
