burstbucker pickup labels

Recommended Posts

I like Burstbucker pickup sets. The pickups have a white label on the back with BB1 or BB2. I've noticed allot of Burstbucker pickups advertised on eBay have other descriptions on the back (example AL V ) and some other descriptions.

My question is simple. Is the pickup a real Burstbucker if the back label does not say BB1, BB2, or BB3?

Thanks

Many Burstbucker Pro humbuckers have "AL V" labels. This refers to the Alnico V magnet used on the Pro(the BB 1, 2, and 3 humbuckers use Alnico II magnets).
