    Yeah I am glad I have the right ones.

    What is the tele Hot worth? I will need to exchange it for something a little tamer. I think the Broadcaster will do me for blues.

    Yeah, your probably right. I just have a bunch of higher gain stuff laying around from my metal days. Now I am into low gain 1940's and 1950's blues and I like using lower output pickups. If they are the hot pickups, they won't work for my music. That is why I will be selling the Tele Hot Lead and going for the "Broadcaster" or something more vintage. I love Duncan pickups but want to make sure I get the "right" Duncans for my style.

    I have what appears to be a tele "Hot Lead" but it doesn't have any sticker on the bottom. Again, it is from about 1980 so maybe that is before they did stickers.

    The P-90's do have stickers. They are 1N and 1B. The identification chart didn't include P-90's. The chart did however use these numbers for mini-humbuckers. These are definately single coil pickups. I am ready to put them in a guitar, but I want to make sure they are not the Hot P-90's since I am into vintage blues.

    Can anyone confirm what a 1N and 1B P-90 is.

    There should be an identifying label on the bottom of each pu. You can check them here........

    How to identify my Seymour Ducans

    Is there a place where I can go to identify the model of my older Seymour Duncan pickups. I have some older P90's and a telecaster bridge pickup from the 80's. How can I find out what they are?
