Very nice catch megadrive!
Antiquity Texas Hot pups, 'all lacquer'... Your Vintage Pro strongly ressembles a late 250... possibly, maybe.

which catalog?....the one linked in the very first post of this thread.

I realize the catalogs are not always right...but still....it's at least a guide of some kind.

seriously though....SD should really stamp their pickups....it would be nice to know for sure what's in my 250.

The archived website is right about the pickups.
As I wrote, the latest 250 were equipped with Antiquity pickups.

In most cases, they were sold... without case. I hope you don't preserve yours too much.

The ones I saw in the Monkey Business shop always had cases, my oldest Duncan has the blue gig bag. I remember the blue ones...there was a Burgundy Mist in a local used gear place recently, matching headstock and beautiful fretboard...someone bought it for a great price, 78,000 yen.

Tang-caps!

That's what the maple covers over the fret-tangs should be called!

Me! I got there first! I coined it! I own it but I'll let you use it

Like this...

Sneakypete - "Oh hey Villager, you just scored one of those SD-250's?"

Villager - "Yeah, it's got those sweet-ass tang-caps!".

P.S Hello.

Well I took your advice and sent an email out of curiosity, along with this picture of my pickups.



And the response I got was that they've never seen that label before and he doesn't know what they are!..lol..

When I originally bought it the guy who was selling it wrote that they were the alnico beefed up in his description, so that's what I've always assumed. But maybe he really didn't know either.

Whatever they are, they sound phenomenal, and I wouldn't change them. It would be nice to know though.

Hey soundcreation,

the pickups you show are Duncan SSL-1s (identified by the 1 in the label)
R is the first letter of the winder?s name, so nothing to do with the model.

I wonder that the duncan support wouldn?t tell you that.

I have a set with exactly the same 1R sticker and from 1988 ...

They could be SSL - 1's that's true....but I'm skeptical about the name part.

The SD guy sent me a link to their pickup codes pre 2002 and the "r" designation isn't even on there.

Add to that other people on the internet have said it stands for "reverse" as in reverse wound.

If you look here there are a lot of pickups with 1 in them on a sticker that are not SSL 1.

I suspect everyone is guessing about this one.

http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/faq/frequently-asked/everything-else/labels/labels/

But yes...based on the 1 and the triangle bottoms SSL 1 might be the best guess.

As I said...whatever they are...I LOVE them.
