I have for some time now thought about your collective advice to never sell these pickups. i have been looking for just the right project guitar to purchase for them to light up. But at last, I am old enough myself to let things go where they will. I prefer for incidental reasons that my 68 Custom is restored to original. These historic relics need to be in the hands of someone who has the guitar that needs them.
Check this post for some discussion of their provenance: http://www.seymourduncan.com/forum/s...d.php?t=238153
You can see from the pix that they were wound by Seymour on PAF bobbins, still retaining all tape, etc. They have lead enough to fit a Les Paul. They have minimum wear – just some gorgeous ghosting on the bobbin tops – and are completely original to 1969 by all estimates.
I would like to offer them here on the SD Forum, but complete the deal on eBay with PayPal. If I get any offers over $750 for this rare and amazing matched set between now and July 15th, by 8pm PST, I will PM the bidder with the best offer that the set is available as a BIN and take only that buyer's bid for purchase.
These guys sound like PAF's. Don't hesitate to inquire.
