FDP Forum / The 'Pup' Tent / Mystery humbucker - can you name it?



Dec 16th, 2015 01:10 PM   Edit   Profile  

I picked up some guitar gear, which included this humbucker (see pic - link).

- It says MADE IN U.S.A. on the back
- Also says F03
- It has a multi-core cable

Any ideas on what this is would be great!

Thanks so much for anyone's expertise.

The mounting ears are small which is a DiMarzio characteristic.

Yep, looks like a DiMarzio. And yet it doesn't say DiMarzio on it.

Great info Peegoo.

I was going to say it's a "4-wire F03 Humbucker" but I thought I might just get slapped for it!
