Members jedisb Posted March 29, 2010 Members Share Posted March 29, 2010 Was going through an old box of guitar stuff I've had stored away for many years. Found a Bill Lawrence L500XL which I had bought back in the mid-eighties. But I also found what I just discovered to be a Gibson T-Top pickup. No cover. Base plate has patent # stamped on in as well as a date of Feb 10, 1978. A friend gave me this pickup when I was a teenager (again, mid-eighties) and since he just gave it to me I thought it was just some generic pickup and just I chucked it in the box and forgot about it. Now that I know what it is, I have a few questions: 1. Were there different bridge and neck versions made of this pickup? And if so, is there any way to tell the difference? I'd like to know what I have.2. What is its relation to the original PAF.3. What is the reputation of these pickups? Are they highly regarded, poorly regarded, etc?
