    Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but I'm trying to identify these pickups and I believe they may be Dimarzio SDS-1's, but just wanted to know if anyone could confirm this and maybe get some more info on them.

    Probably, but I don't have the guitar and the seller is unwilling to open it up.

    They look like old SDS-1 pickups to me - I've seen many.

    I think the hex polepieces would denote it as a Dimarzio. The only other places I've seen them are on (licenced) Schaller versions of some Dimarzio designs and on the OEM pickups fitted to Matsumoku guitars (Westones/Vantages et al)... nice S-1!

    I have them on one of my Fido guitars and I believe these are the real deal, which also means this Gibson will sound way better than the stock Bill Lawrence units ever made it sound.

    Yeah they look like vintage SDS-1 PAF super distortions..I have several of them. Without a reading or pics of the bottoms you can't be 100% sure but they certainly look the part from those pics.
