Hi, I am by no means an expert but here is what I know.

If the PU has a "pattent applied for" decal, it is most likely a '57 classic. Other PU's used were the Gibson Bill Lawrence "the original HB-L models but only during a limited period, I think late 80's and they are easy to recognise..

My ObG came with the "pattent applied for" decal..

The PU that you mention I know nothing about...

Perhaps you should rest in the fact that they sound great coz that's all that matters, isn't it?

Hope this helped.

Regards,

Joop
