    Gee.... I have no guess, but I'd like to know, too.
    And, yeah - it looks like a bike or a G.
    Very stylized.

    The pickups sound great. 9K bridge 7.2K neck... Trying to figure out what they're worth used....(I replaced them with noiseless Kinmans) They're the pickups in my Green Tele in my pic...

    I feel like I've seen a similar squiggle at the bottom of a Lollar pickup....will check when I get home.

    Thanks Dirk, I'd really appreciate it… I was told that the pickups were Lollars, but they weren't sure...

    You know what, it could be a Curtis Novak.

    The only boutique pickups I've ever handled personally are Novaks, Lollars, TV Jones, Lindy Fralin and Rio Grande. Rio Grandes and TVJ' are pretty conspicuously marked. Fralins aren't really marked at all. And all the Lollars I've seen first hand have the paint pen writing on the bottom as discussed. That leaves the Novaks, which I don't really have access to right now.
