    Default Pickup label stickers.. what do they mean?

    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering in anyone can help me identify two pickups that were given to me as part of the guts of a guitar (floyd Rose, tuners, etc.)?
    One pickup has a sticker that has "JBJ" written on it (I think this one is a JB Model?) and the other has a sticker that has "SEY J" on it. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    ewit in smokey Miami

    Welcome to the forum!

    Here's the list of label codes for pre-2002 pickups:

    Looks to me like your JBJ is a JB and your SEY J is a Duncan Distortion neck model, and both were made by someone whose initial is J.

    yeah everything already answered by Simon_F

    I've always wondered why it's "called" "SEY"??
    The others all make sense to me but Sey not. Does the DDn used to have an other name (like JM) or what?
    Can someone clarify (?) this? sorry for hijacking

    I think someone said the DDn was originally called the Seymourizer..... but I'm not certain, I could be making it up

    Hey Marcel,

    Thanks for your help as well. I'm looking forward to modifying my japanese strat with the JB in the bridge position.
