Challenger pickups???


Recommended Posts

My son has a Challenger II, from about 1982. Flat-top body (like a Special), silver finish, bolt-on maple/rosewood neck, Schaller combination bridge/tailpiece. The original pickups were solid black and completely sealed. There were no visible pole pieces or blades. AND - they were slightly larger than a stock humbucker. The were attached to the pickguard with 3 adjusting screws. Does anyone know what these pickups are? Maybe Schaller, or Lawrence? Maybe a variation of the Les Paul Recording low impedance units? Got me stumped!!
