This is a long shot since you haven't been on this forum for 7 years but thought I would give it a try.

I just stubbled across this old thread from back in 2015 about a Vintage brand Les Paul:

Just wondering if you still have the guitar and if you would consider selling it?

Hey man.

Was really hoping you could help me figure something out?

I am wondering what the serial number is on the TST50 with these pots that you posted?


Really appreciate it!

Done! Sorry it took a while!
That’s so cool. Thank you!

And cool that they have the mixed code. I’ve been logging these examples.

See here:

Hey Chuck congrats on the guitar. I just bought another es100R. I’m not positive yet as I don’t have it yet but I might be interested in those original J pickups if you’re not going to need them. But only if I don’t like the PAF 57s installed. But I’ve loved them in every other guitar I’ve had so we will see. :) Just thought I’d mention it. Thanks,

Hey Mitch, over the decades I found that the PAF57 pups seem to work better on LP models rather than 335. I would recommend that if you were looking to change pickups, also change the wiring to a 50s Style loom for better dynamics. I have done a few refits of Tokai 335s to include Montys PAF pickups with incredible results. Only a suggestion.

Thanks for that. Th wireing confused me and took me awhile but I put in the PAF57s and really like them. I considered my Dry Zs or my Deaccies but Made the decision and I'm happy so far. Massive improvement over the Gotoh PAFs that were in there. I really didn't like them.
