    I'm sure they are fine. They look fantastic! I like a little character in my Strat coils. :D

    Nice pics, Artie. That 84 Studio Standard is mine. As much as guys drool over those pickups, for me it's all about the neck. This one has a nice medium to medium thin one, and low wide frets, which I like very much. I foolishly sold another one of these a few years ago, but this one is a keeper!

    Am I hallucinating or can you see the slug coils through the covers?

    Tiny ferrous dust particles stuck to the cover via magnetism? Physically impressed into the cover from pressure? It's pretty wild looking either way!

    I definitely didn't notice that in person, but perhaps my eyes are getting older because I also thought those stickers on the rings were little phase/split switches.

    No, nothing weird going on. In order to see what my Lester would look like with double creams, I applied a set of bobbin toppers (which are adhesive devices designed to change the appearance of your pickups) directly to the covers. I yanked them Sunday morning, and brought the guitar into the show on a whim, without cleaning it first. You are not hallucinating! :wow:

    Oh, man! I feel better now. I thought I might have been having flashback induced by spending so much time around those lava lamps in my booth last weekend. ...or the steady diet of beer and candy. :thumb:

    I was there Saturday. The " My Les Paul " booth was like being in heaven. I bought an 02 R8 from Jimmy Wallace. :)

    Artie, these 2 are as good as I can get right now. Yes, 81174520 is the sn# As far as being over sprayed, no idea. If it was then it was a long time ago.

    520 is a Nashville code. It may well have Tim Shaw Pickup in it.

    Darn!, would've been nice if it was made in Kalamazoo.

    Currently it has Sheptone AB's but I do have the Shaws that were in it.

    Also, 84 was a leap year so I think that makes it April 26th. Either way, she's old and she's MINE!!

    Oh ya. I'll be there. With even more guitars, amps, pickups, and candy.

    ...besides, I've got to get my Iron Hill Brewery growler filled back up. ;)
