    Hey. If this was possibly a Deluxe with mini Humbuckers. Wouldn't there be screw holes where the Mounting braket used to be? or was there other ways to fasten down the pickup? I'm not against checking under the control plate. My Amp just packed in in... waiting for tubes..now would be a good...

    Hey Thanks for checking this out. I have a pic of the Neck route. And Big Al mentioned a good pic of the inlays. Like you said it's a puzzle for sure. I'm more than happy with it. It sounds great ! Stays in tune . Intonation is good . I haven't weighed it. But it's more than a 2015 Trad...
