    I just posted pics of these pickups in the members section, I had a hard time getting a close up of the square inside the circle. I need verification, because I have a buyer for them, but need to know myself. Supposedly these came out of a `63 Gibson ES 345? obviously it had to have gold hardware.

    I can see square in circle clearly on one, but not the other. Black and white leads on one, but double black on the other?

    Anybody care to weigh in?

    thanks,

    peach

    Ok , I looked at the pics you posted . I don't think those pics are good enough to make a judgement on , about the pickups . Clear pictures are needed .

    To answer your question, Yes that's normal , and from different years and in this case different guitars .

    thank you jamman,

    I'm trying to get better pics with a samsung 12 pixel camera, but I cannot get the it to focus for close up pics.

    Use the Macro mode on the camera for close ups.

    And a tripod. Even a cheap mini-tripod is better than handheld. Use a timer as well, as has been recommended by many members.
