    If they are the stock pickups then my understanding is yes. The A5 poles are staggered but flat on the tops.

    Looks the same as mine. As well, I think in 2012 when they started putting in the Custom Shop Fat 50’s they put in aged white pickup covers and knobs with the parchment pickguard. Yours looks exactly like mine with the parchment coloured covers and guard. I think the poles look staggered with non-bevelled tops too. Very likely the same.

    Someone else may be able to give you better info, like any identifying markings or something to look for if you look at the back of the pickguard/wiring etc.

    Congrats! I Love my 2011 AM STD with the Alinico Vs! Almost got a burst just like yours but went for the black body at the last minute. I bought the same case for my Standard. Really a great case for the money.

    Here is an image of the back of my pickgaurd. Fat 50s look very different. Its a 5 minute job to pop off
    the pickgaurd and snap a pick. Just make sure not to pull any wires from the body.

    Which 2012 pickups were on that one? Standard ones or Fat 50’s? (I’ve been told they switched in 2012 around March)

    eBay. It was from an actual music store. I’ve actually had really good luck finding some amazing guitars for pretty good deals there.

    That is very pristine looking, for an 8 year old guitar. It’s up to you to put some great musical miles on it:thumb:
    HNGD!

    Beautiful! I think I like the 2TSB better than the 3TSB, too!
