    Hey everyone, I have a body (believed to be classic 50s) with a replacement pickguard but the electronics should be stock. The are white, non beveled, staggered, with the black fiber bobbin, and white/black cloth leads. Can you guys help identify the model? 20160229_121226 (1).jpg

    Take off the pickup covers & show us what colour the coils are - that will narrow it down. And show us the poles from the top so we can see if they are chamfered or not. Without this info, people can only guess.

    Classic Player 50s are 57/62s with RWRP (yellow wire) middle.
    The Classic Series are Vintage Mex with plastic bobbins
    What color is the coil wire?
