    Default SH1 Query . No Seymour Duncan stamp on base plate .

    Hi All . I've lurked some years but never posted . Well you don't I guess till you have a question or can make some input . I have for several years had a set of WLH in my 2002 R8 and been very happy .

    I would think all is in order but I'm curious about these pickups being in the guitar I recently bought . Again no question about the guitar though we did question if it was a 2011 Don Felder R8 Stinger or indeed a late Burst Brothers R8 version . Gibson confirmed Felder . That said they couldn't confirm the pickups , though agreed could be SD. They appear to be original factory fit as the electronics and wiring seem totally unmolested , unless someone did a very clean replacement . The Felder is reported to have had BB1 and BB2 at factory albeit reverse to normal . Going off the printed numbers I assume my pickups are 59 bridge and neck Vintage Blues set but there is no Seymour Duncan stamp . If all is correct perhaps that would be the way of OEM or custom I'm told . Any thoughts ? Thanks .

    Sticker looks like Duncan sticker. Only Duncan could say if they supplied any 59 sets to Gibson for the Felder LPs.

    Conventional wisdom is to call to get an answer. I’ve had mixed results getting a response via email. But worth trying both of the first option doesn’t work.

    FWIW I have some custom shop pickups with plain baseplates but they were always signed by MJ or Seymour. So they do make things with plain baseplates, but I don’t know what to make of these ‘factory installed’ in a Gibson.

    Thanks . Yes I'll call if nothing comes back from email . Guitar sounds great but would be good to know what these are . It could be they are after market but tech says they look factory fit and aftermarket items would expect to stamped base plates . I've not read anywhere that Seymour Duncans were specified for the Felder or Burst Brothers R9s or R8 Stingers . Curious .

    My money is on an OEM model. But I'd love to hear what SD says.

    Though I could think of so many other models that would be way better in a Felder LP.

    Had it two weeks and just set up so I'm enjoying it as is a while . That said I am likely to be tempted to change pickups sometime . It does have a fat creamy tone though and different to my other 3 LPs . Interestingly mate and tech says it may be best sounding of them all . I'd welcome suggestions .
