I've had this so long I cant recall who makes it !

First thought is DiMarzio based on the hex screws for the polepieces, but the wire colors are orange, red, brown, black and shield ground, and I don't recall DiMarzio using those colors.

It seems with the 4 conductor you can split coils, but will run it full humbucker, so curious which should be joined and which should not be used.

What do you think ?

It appears to be Dimarzio based on the grub screw polepieces (like the Super II model), but Dimarzios have pointy 'ears' on the brass base plate where the height screw threads in.

It does resemble early Duncan--in that it has square ears on the brass base plate, but Duncan didn't use grey PVC insulation on the leads; theirs are black or silver braid. Early Duncans did have plain (unstamped) base plates for years.

It's not Gotoh from the 80s; everything is a match, except for the square hole at the end of each bobbin's top. Gotohs didn't have that.

It's not Schaller from the 1980s or 90s, before they started stamping their brass base plates. Schaller also didn't have that little square hole.

I'm going to guess it's a Japanese in-house pickup from Hoshino or Fuji-Gen, using a bobbin that's a knock-off of the original Gibson PAF.

How about some IBZ's that may have come out of an old Ibanez? They use an Dimarzio designed pickup and are even possibly designed by them. I'm not sure if Dimarzio is the maker of Ibanez pickups but the dimensions and wire coding are identical.
My vote is a Dimarzio or even maybe an old Carvin offering. They have pickups made in the same fashion and had wondered many times if they were made for Carvin.

Good call Cal!

I just did some work for a guy on his 2017 MII Ibanez RG Series (budget line) and the pickup tops looked just like the ones pictured.

Ibanez calls them "Quantum" but no idea of their designer or origin.

Hence my speculation they came from Hoshino.

Hoshino Gakki is the Japanese factory that made the Ibanez brand through the mid-2000s. They also make Tama drums.
