Some guitars fitted with this pickup

1976 Gibson L-6S custom
The L-6S was another of the mid early/mid seventies designs by Bill Lawrence. Electronically it was quite distinct with the six-way varitone switch and extra tone controls, and it had it's own chrome covered pickup too. The Custom was the top of the L-6S range and the cheaper models, the Deluxe and the Midnight Special, had the black units below. All models were mounted with typical black plastic surrounds.

The pickup was used in both neck and bridge positions. Part numbers 13682 (neck) and 13683 (bridge). Dimensions: 70mm x 38mm x 19mm (excluding mounting tabs); Surround, 90mm x 45mm; Mounting screw holes are 78mm apart. Each pickup has three wires, orange red and black - see images.

The images below show the pickup in situ, the pickup routes, the underside, and the coils disassembled from mounting ring.
