It would be interesting to see ALL attributes of the three hole bobbin examples you speak of: the Z stamp, the serial number stamp, etc.

Screws can be changed, easily.

I'll see if I have a ...

Can I just jump into this thread with my example of a set of Dry Z (or not). I bought a set 10 years ago from a well known Japanese guitar dealer on this site. They look identical to the ones posted ...

OK; here is the deal.

I play my Crews KTR LS-02 very infrequently so, I don't have a very good reference point for the tonal/sonic response of the original pickups in this guitar.

So, I took ...

that would be a 1980 LS-50 'inkie' from the Nagano factory; a very nice, early example, IMO.

I should have mentioned that the seller with the 3-hole bobbin set also sold 2 more sets recently, all with non-original covers. Not conclusive evidence, but there are tons of Maxon/Fujigen pickups ou ...

IMO the Z is not correct, there are subtle differences. Good attempt though. Here is a picture of Z's in a guitar. Note how narrow the ends of the letter are. It CAN be smudged or have variation due t ...

It is not myself who bought them but, to be honest, everything seems legitimate for me. Square holes and everything. The first set has the Z a little thick, it's true, but it seems to be due to the mo ...

Real or not that's more money for a set of pups than i've paid for 99% of my guitars.....

there are a lot of 'expensive' pickups on the market that cost a pretty penny; Dry Z are just one of the ma ...

interesting observation Harold about the Z stamp; I wonder if any of the Zs I've owned had a 'fake' Z stamp?
