View Full Version : PRS 59/09's

Hey everyone,

There is a seller on Craigslist that has a set of 59/09 uncovered pickups for sale. He has the PRS boxes that they came in as well. I am wondering what the bottom of the pickup is supposed to look like so that I am getting the actual pickups and not being scammed. Can anyone help with info or photos. It would be appreciated.

I've got some pics i can dig up, but there are a couple variations of the stickers on the bottom. Either the white label or the black the gold trim label that's on the newer ones. If they came out of a Custom 24 it's probably the latter. The earlier covered versions I've have had the white label.

Great...thanks for that. I have seen three different labels so far. Just making sure these are the real deal.

BTW, GREAT PICKUPS!! Had them in a CU24 and they were just so perfect! Tele (coil tapped) to Les Paul tones...

These are a rare set with boxes that were never installed into any guitar.


They have covers but at least you can see the stickers and backs

Perfect Canadian PRSGUY. These are the real 59/09's then that are being sold. I am getting these for a steal and cannot pass this up. Should have them by the end of next week!

They are going into a Custom 24 that currently has the HFS/VB with a rotary. I am thinking of switching it over to a 3 way unless anyone can comment on 59/09's with a 5 way rotary tones.
