Do you have a photo of the underside of the pickups? Pots and codes would be useful also.
I'm curious if anyone can tell me what two new Humbuckers and new Les Paul guts I bought in 1972 might be worth ? They have been in a drawer since I brought them. Just wondering what they might be worth now. One brother out there has given me some info, I appreciate it, but I was thinking I'd get a little more from the experts. Anyone who has a idea, and can help, I'd appreciate it. Thanks you guys
Thanks @Chumpy36 for a very smooth purchase/transaction! Hope you enjoy '8 ball' (y)
