Help identify pickup (and position)

Recommended Posts


Bought this one single mini humbucker pickup. The seller didn't have any information about it, and the sticker on the back of the pickup is gone. I am thinking that is possibly came from a Gibson Firebird X? Or a Gibson Les Paul X?  As I understand they were alnico 5 in neck position, ceramic in middle position, and alnico 2 in bridge position on these guitars. So does anyone know how to identify which position it is? Do they for example have different colors on the cables for neck, middle, bridge?
