    Gibson Pickups

    Up for your consideration are two Gibson pickups. The slight problem here is that Gibson doesn't label their pickups, so I have no idea what they are. They both have a capital "T" on the baseplate, so I presume they are either 500t,498t,or 496t. Unfortunately I don't have a multimeter available to try and figure out which model they are based on resistance, and I am too lazy to find one. So I am willing to let go of them cheaply.

    Both pickups are a bit grimy, but perfectly functional. Lead is over 12" on both. Pickup #1 is Gibsons version of "F Spaced" (I believe they use this on some Vs or something? I don't really know a lot about Gibson pickups.), or 53mm, and Pickup #2 is spaced 50mm. I have no way of verifying whether pickup #2 is a bridge or a neck pickup, but it does have the "T" on the baseplate, and I though that usually denotes a bridge pickup in Gibson terminology. Pickup #1 has the "T" on the same side as the adjustable pole pieces, and Pickup #2 has it on the opposite side. Once again, I have no idea what this denotes, but maybe someone with more knowledge pertaining to Gibson pickups can figure it out? In any event, let me know if you have any info on them! Both pickups are four conductor. No additional accessories (i.e. no mounting hardware) is included I'm afraid.

    Asking $23 shipped for each pickup or $42 shipped for the pair. I think that's a fair enough price for one of you pickup fiends to snatch them up just for experimentation! Prices are CONUS. Rates elsewhere will be higher, but I am certainly ship if you are willing to cover the additional expenses.
