    Question Can anyone identify this pickup?

    I took this neck pickup out of a '79 The Paul that I got used to see what it was, since it wasn't the Gibson stock t-top. Pulled it out to find Seymour's signature on the back, and some heavy solder, but not much else. Can anyone possibly identify what this might be/when it was from?
    Is there a range of time, or specific models that are known to be hand-signed? Thanks!

    Probably antiquity. You would need to take an ohm reading.

    Yes, probably an Ant. Looks like his not too recent handwriting - lets say end of 90ies to beginning 2000, but all stickers to date it exactly are gone.

    Welcome to the forum!

    So, how cool does that sound?! I always liked 'The Paul' models, too.

    That pup didn't originally have that much solder on it. Even if it had a stock cover on it to begin with, at some point it was removed and replaced...maybe several times.

    But, yes, take some readings on it...each coil separately and together in series.
