Hi all.
This is the humbucker that was previously in my V copy pre installing the Seymour D JB. I’ve read quite a bt about these but can’t quite pin point the year. Any help would be appreciated as I’m quite curious about this little fella.

That baseplate with the two lines of screws has the treble (wider) spacing on one side with the little T imprinted on the edge. The introduction of the 498 was the first occurrence of that wider spacing plus the 'do it all' baseplate.
