    Can anyone identify these buckers? They came from a 2006 MIK Epi ES-135. At first I thought they were generic because (1) there are no obvious markings like an "Epiphone" stamp on the back and (2) the stock pups had chrome covers and poles, not gold. But after magnifying the faded black sticker on the neck pup, I can see "Patent Applied For." Does that make them Epis? Thanks in advance.

    They don’t look like Epiphone made pickups. That braided wire and sticker suggests something else.

    Solder traces broken at the pots? Pots changed?? Wire colors..(2/4?) all that info would help.

    Didn’t Gibson make a pickup in the 200’s that had the paf style sticker???

    The humbuckers aren't original to the guitar. They read 8.8 and 8.7K. Two wires, black and the sheath.
