Did they stop with the T mark after ‘78?
The ink date stamp on the baseplate was standard for 1979
The rub mark looks like it was made before the ink stamp?
I added some pics to your ‘archive’ of your pickups. If not ok to do so, I will move them here.
P.S. they are alnico’s so well pleased, to the OP I paid $200 for one with cover solder unbroken. Dated feb ‘79 so looks like yours is same as mine.
I have a question. I have a '78 LP Custom. HB are dated Msy 1978. Do I assume they're T tops? If I pull off the cover, should I see a T on the bobbin? If I do, is that dispositive? And if yes, is there a hierarchy to T tops? In other words, should I be excited?
Just curious, because i've always liked the tone but bought a Wolfetone set (Dr V/Marshallhead) out of sheer boredom.
Tell us more about this guitar?
The guitar in the picture doesn't look like a Gibson to me.
