Hi Everyone - These came out of a 1964 ES-335. The original owner sent his guitar to Gibson in 1978 to have them repair a broken bridge and in the process Gibson installed these pickups into the guitar (go figure....). They are fantastic, but I restored the guitar to "original condition" so am selling these.

They have very long leads (over a foot each), both are strong and sound fantastic. Never have had any work done to them - Perfect condition.

$245 for both (net) or +.2.9% for Paypal fees

Will ship Free, FedEx Priority Overnight

It's not only the shipping, it's the other fees that come on top.
Buying a 300$ of pickups with let's say 20$ of shipping will end up costing 400€ here in Luxembourg...

is that a white spacer in that pup???



one wooden spacer and one white plastic spacer in 1978???

I have seen a few Tim Shaw early pups that had white spacers with a T-top bobbin (even though TS said he NEVER wound any on T bobbins)...but 1978 is a little too early??

This has got to be the EARLIEST Tim Shaw I have ever seen, if it is original (it looks like it is).....do you have an ohm reading???

this is a pretty good deal on these.....

I'm not looking for top dollar here, just looking to move them to someone who needs them since I have no use for them.

$245 for both and I will cover over-night shipping to you (if in the US).

I remember Buzz had 1979 w/ white spacer.
I never seen a 1978. Any measurements?
I don't know the readings at the moment. All I can say is that when A-B-Ced against my 1959 and 1964 ES-335s they stacked up with them. Cheers!

A white spacer doesn't make it a Shaw. These are later model T-Tops as stated.
