    I have a 2013 Trad Pro II and I finally got around to pulling the PU. I know what a couple of the letters mean, but can anyone tell me what the numbers refer to? IMG_3036.JPG IMG_3037.JPG

    This is the correct answer,....assuming that your guitar has the '60s slim taper.

    I can confirm that mine follows this trend; "LPTP26 M". The "M" I have always assumed, denotes "Merlot" - the name given to the particular shade of Wine Red finish applied, which had less black pigment in it, making it lighter. Pic for example and because why not :D

    Looks like mystery solved. Now can we get a full pic?!?! Didn't know these came with a Super 57 bridge PU! My ears have really gotten a 'broader appeal' to more pickups, I initially didn't like 57s in general but I've found I really like the uncovered 57/57+ set, now I want to hear an uncovered Super 57! Is that like a 57++?
