Here's something you don't see every day, 1960's Kent electric guitar pickup...

I had a Kent amp and a no-name SG copy that was probably a Kent as well, back in the early 70s. I do not look back fondly on either of them.

It looks like the pickup has a clear plastic coil former. It seems like it was really common to make pickups that way, up until the 80's. The early Gibson knock-offs had these sort of pickups underneath the chrome covers. And now you never see it, probably because Fender and Gibson style pickups dominate, even in guitars made by other brands.
