    Hello there everyone,

    I just picked up a new-to-me 2011 Custom Shop 50's closet classic. Its a lovely guitar and quite unusual as it has a Humbucker in the neck position. When I pulled it apart to have a look, there was not much to identify the neck pickup. Was wondering if someone with more experience than I have could point me in the right direction.

    Thanks,

    Fluffy.

    Looks like a Gibson PAF, but who knows.

    Generic PAF type...in light of the lack of other information such as DCR, magnet, etc.

    Did you get a spec sheet?

    If not, call fender, if it’s original to the guitar they can tell you what it is

    That is Seymour Duncan's signature. It's an SD Antiquity Humbucker

    Amazing call man! Thanks so much for helping me answer this.

    I found a similar pickup online and thought I'd include it to show how right you are! SD2.jpg
