    • Hi. I believe this Duncan bucker is fake, but it puzzles me. The connector has been modified. Could it really be a SWD Custom Shop Greenie ? Thanks for your help, and do have a nice day.

          Certainly the wire isn't right...the CS version wasn't 4 conductor, and if it did, it wouldn't be grey anyway. This is the bottom of an actual CS Greenie:

          • Thank you for your replies. The seller for this humbucker says that the wire has been replaced.

                • The signature looks authentic, though. Not sure if the plate came from one of the first Greenies and everything else was replaced??

                  • Would the seller have an original invoice?

                    • I do understand why the SH-4 is heavily counterfeited, but what's the point to make a fake Greenie ?

                      • Well, some Custom Shop pickups are copied simply because they are expensive parts.

                            You pictures are totally different. That one looks like it might be right except for the wire. I'd send that photo to the Custom Shop directly and ask if it could be real.

                            • that last pic of the greenie, looks better. the screws didnt look brass in the first set of pics which is a big tell of a fake, they look like they might be brass?

                              • It's definitely Seymour's signature on the plate. If real, it'd have to be one of the first ones made.
