Question How to identify Pickup?

Hi colleagues,

does anybody know how to reliably identify the DiMarzio PAF Pros of a JEM777SK?


Many years ago I replaced the two humbuckers, but for the 20th anniversary of my guitar I want to have everything genuine and original again.
Unfortunately I only have one PAF Pro and don't know where the other one is.
Now I need to get a second one, but I don't know which.

The only text the pickup has on its back is

Made in U.S.A.
Is there a way to determine if it is a neck or bridge pickup?
Or does it make no difference and they're identical?

Thanks and regards,

There are only one Paf Pro, it was used in both neck and bridge.
If you buy a new one, the old have probably faded a lot compared to the new one.

Re: How to identify Pickup?

The F likely refers to F spaced. Most people use those in the bridge, paired with a standard spaced pickup in the neck.
