Black-tape tarback humbucker. Rare? ;-)


Recommended Posts

This Ebay seller is selling this tar-back pickup "as-is", but without mentioning the fact that the bracket is taped on to the back with electrician's tape. At least it looks that way to me. Without enlarging the picture, it may not be obvious to a buyer. Buyer beware. It's interesting to note that the pickup has the same very low ohms reading that the bridge pickup does in my '74 L.P. Std. I'm wondering if people try to take these apart in order to check for why they have such low impedance? I'd like to get one for the neck, but they sure seem pricey. I think I'll probably end up getting some Classic 57's for it instead.
