    I have a set in my Eastman 335-type, and they are wonderful. I would think if you are using tones from clean to just short of metal, they would be an ideal set.

    It's not visible in the pic, but there was a slight trace of Seymour's sig. I used some alcohol to remove the ‘Pearly Gates’ which of course removed any trace of the signature, too. These pickups sound fantastic in my McInturff Polaris Pro.

    Both are probably Duncans. The bridge is an Ant from the end 90ties to beginning 2000. This is the personal sign of the boss himself, Seymour. But we need to see the label on the neck pickup!
    The legs on both pups are ~1\2”.

    They might be long legs…I always thought S=3/8”, L=3/4”, but these were somewhere between.

    Okay, if we narrowed it down to CS Pearlies or Ants.
    Then we have 2 more points: The magnet and gauss reading could help. The Ants should have a dunaged mag and the Pearlies should have standard mag.
    Next question: Why do they use double whites instead of double cream? Are on Ants dbl whites or only vintage correct colors?

    Sorry, I already button'd 'er up! But the Neck label is identical to the Bridge label, except it of course reads, ‘NECK’. Did the factory ever label a pickup by hand with a marker?

    Definitly not early! The labels were stamped in the beginning, not printed. Seymours sign also changed over the years. And there were not double whites only double cream in the beginning years of the CS.
