DiMarzio 'glossy' bobbins

DiMarzio offers, as an option on 'six screw, six slug' pickups, 'glossy' - allegedly butyrate - bobbins. They also offer nickel-silver long-leg baseplates.

I've never seen these in person, but every example I can find online has both or neither; that is, I can't find glossy bobbins and brass base, or nickel base and 'regular' bobbins.

I wonder if they're sourcing the same butyrate bobbins as everyone else. That also might explain why they don't offer an F-spaced glossy option.

But that implies that the glossy pickups have a slightly different pole spacing, since DiMarzio's 'standard' spacing is a little narrower than Gibson/Duncan/etc....which would explain why I only see the baseplate/bobbins in combination.

Does anyone own glossy AND regular DiMarzios? If so, could you measure the respective pole spacings and let me know if they're different?

Thanks!

Vintage glossy bobbins, single-conductor cable, and long-legged nickel silver baseplates are all a la carte options. You can order any combination.
