    Can any of you guys ID thin Tele bridge pickup? Its been in my '68 Tele for over 22 years and I have no idea what it is other than non-original. It reads 9K and sounds great, fat but twangy. I figure you guys have seen them all. Maybe the two little bumps on the bass side in the 1st pic is a tell tale sign. Thanks!! Click on the pic and it should bring you to a close up.

    Seymour in the eighties did a flat pole tele PU and called it a 54 . from the color of the cloth cover on the wire of the postive and wax on the cover of the wire it seems to be a Seymour Duncan 54 from the memories I have of their builds.

    Promising! I sent the pics to Duncan and they said it could be theirs..maybe I'll email back that possibility and jog some memories! ...And not the same as the modern '54 from Duncan right? Thanks!

    Checked my resource material and thats a Duncan 54 or "Vintage" built between 78 and 82 then they went with a logo stamped on the bottom of the plate.
