    What do You think about these pickups and the push/pull wiring?
    Are those really '57 Classic? And is the setprice (55 €) fair?

    Are they brand new ?

    If they come out of a guitar, they are real and sound good if well adjusted on your guitar. If they come from an eBay style seller, they are copies and you have to try them to know if they sound anything like the real thing.

    To me the set *looks* legit, perhaps too legit. The carefully positioned Epiphone jack, the correct (technically distinct from Switchcraft) Epiphone style switch, correct wiring connectors... If that's not a super clean take out by an experienced seller, that's a super well done scam. The pickups themselves don't have the bottom stickers I had on the 57 Classics I pulled out of my '07 G400. Mine distinctly had "57" on the sticker, but this was a pre quick connect two wire set.
