I have a 1973 Stratocaster that I bought used in 1975. The bridge pickup had been replaced. The guy that sold it to me told me what type it was, but I can't remember if he said it was a Mighty Mite or a Seymour Duncan. (1975 was a long time ago....
Anyway, I'm so thrilled with the 'Hot Rodded Humbucker' set that I put in another guitar that I've decided to put an 'Everything Axe' set in my Strat. So i'm trying to identify this replacement pickup so that I can sell it along with the other pickups (an Original Fender Neck and a Dimarzio middle).
This pickup doesn't have any distinguishing markings - I haven't pulled up the pickguard to look underneath, but I don't remember any numbers stamped on it.
What is distinguishing about this pickup is the unusually large diameter magnets. The only pickups that look like this which I can find is the Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound Flat SSL-4.
Does anyone know if Seymour Duncan produced the Quarter Pound pickup (or a similer pickup with very large diameter magnets) back in the early '70s? If so, would there be anyway of definitively identifying it?
Alternatively, does anyone know of a single-coil pickup that was produced by anyone else back in the '70s which has large diameter magnets and which might be mistaken for a Seymour Duncan Quarter pound Flat SSL-4?
