Just bought a used Goldtop Classic. Always a crapshoot via GC but this one plays and sounds amazing.
After looking at the bridge pickup I’m sure they are Duncan’s. Aged nickel covers = Antiquties?

i cannot help ref pickups. but i do enjoy the crapshoot of buying used. Bought a used marshall dsl15 2 years back, it was loaded with old mullards. guy who owned it didn't play an instrument. He just liked collecting stuff.

I can’t tell you how many USA made tubes I’ve received in used GC amps. Bought a 5150 head maybe 8 years ago with the original Power tubes that everyone lived so much. I also bought a LP standard with some old Japanese (not the hood ones) pickups in it, so it’s not always a good thing.

Yep-Antiquities wound by MJ (as opposed to Seymour).

They do well with a full strength A2 in the bridge if you find them a bit anemic. If you throw in some Unoriented A5s they sound more like the Duncan 59s used to sound in the late 70s, early 80s.
