    When I purchased my '81 Ibanez AS-50 I was told it had 70s Gibson T-tops in it. I ended up buying the guitar since it played and sounded fantastic, but I never had the shop actually pull the pickups out so i could look at them - not that I would be able to recognize a T-top if it bit me in the backside. :laugh2:

    Anyways, I had a look at the back of the pickups a while back and its not clear to me what pickup is in the bridge position.

    Your comments/thoughts are appreciated. :thumb:

    Those are T-tops. The covers were added, changed, or have at least been taken off at some point.
