I posted last year about a partscaster I picked up which consisted of a 61 body with 72 neck. What I'm curious to know now is, are the single coil pickups potentially original to the body? The pickguard, knobs, and saddles were replaced, but the ton pots and selector switch are original, along with some of the wiring. There's also a Gibson T-top patent sticker humbucker in the bridge position. I need to take an ohm reading of the pickups, but there are details that match those of a 60's Strat. They both feature unmarked black backs, staggered poles, and the bobbin is thick showing no signs of waviness. Even the eye test looks good, as they appear aged. Some overall history on the guitar. It's evident the guitar was serviced in the 70's. There's a professional route job done in the bridge position to accommodate a humbucker, and a special-ordered 4-bolt, single piece maple neck was installed. My assumption is the original neck died an untimely death. So bottom line, extensive work has been done to the guitar. I realize the plastic leads are 100% not original to a 60's pickup, but I think it's reasonable to postulate that the leads were redone as part of this work, or even at a later date. What do you make of these pickups? I'll be sure to post info on the ohm reading once I've done that.
