Ok, these are called Single-Buckers. The magnets structure is similar in concept to a Gibson Charlie Christian pickup. They were found on guitars from National, Supro

One issue with them is that they had paper bobbins. When people open them up they usually destroy them. This one I'm working on this week needed a totally new bobbin made for it.

Almost. Think longer scale Grabber and I'll mention that this picture is on the pickup flipped upside down.

It looks in construction LIKE a Firebird pup, and I forget the guys name who designed these. But, it is like a 'second gen' version.

So, I might say a Thunderbird, except from following your threads I happen to have a clue that it might be from a particular bass you have been working on.

Also, I see no reason why a pup for a Thunderbird, or Firebird derivative wouldn't be used on other types of basses. It seems more likely than unlikely.

Final answer: Ripper.

Yes! Ripper it is. This one is personal. I'm using it to build some copies for my 78 Ripper Bass project.

I love these pickups! If you have a pair for sale or make copies I would be very interested..
