Could somebody possibly help me identifying my Humbucker:

Sticker on the backside Patent No 2,737.842, T marked on both black boppins (on left side of each a small 2 and 4), GREY wire

About half way down...

After PAF pickups were gone, the patent# pickups were next and used from 1962 to 1965. Then from 1965 to 1975 (note overlap) the next Gibson humbucker is known as the "T bucker" or "T top". They are called this because of a "T" that is part of the molding on the front of the two pickup bobbins. These also had the decal with "Patent No 2,737,842" (still the patent number of Les Paul's trapeze tailpiece). The only way to see the "T" is to remove the pickup cover. A small change in late patent# pickups was white PVC bobbin wires instead of black (black was used on pre-1965 humbuckers). Also T buckers can use either slot or phillips head screws to hold the bobbins to the base plate

Thanks for the info. I have decided to sell the pickup on eboink. Please find better pictures and details there.

henrik, this isn't the classified section. I think you want to be here. http://forums.gibson...x?g=topics&f=82
Maybe Jocko will move this thread for you.
