You posted in the wrong section, this should probably be in the Norlin Years thread. The pups are most likely Shaws. In 1982, Shaw pups had an ink stamp on the bottom. Not to be confused with Dirty Fingers that also had a stamp but no cover and 2 rows of adjustable poles on each pup. The last 3...
^^^ This ^^^. I have a 2013 es335. I assumed it had chrome hardware. Then I took it in and had some pups with chrome covers put in. That’s when I noticed all the remaining hardware was actually nickel.
I’m just messing with you because I like the sound of the mini-hums, LP’s with regular pups are a dime a dozen. It seems a shame that so many Deluxes were gutted. But, I wouldn’t believe that Gibson made any Deluxes with full size humbuckers unless @HardCore Troubadour told me so.
The 2013 and 2014 Traditionals were not weight relieved. They had 50’s necks. Any Trad from those years with a 60’s neck isn’t a Trad, it’s a Trad Plus or Trad 2, etc. and is probably weight relieved. There are other years without weight relief since then. I’m sure other members will chime in.
