Help me ID this pickup (pics)

This pickup came to me in a UV7BK that had been modded. It was the only pickup and was in the bridge position. It is a 2-wire (which leads me to believe it's not the original Blaze) 7-string humbucker and is marked with a 'B' on the back.

Any ideas?

The pole pieces are small for a TA pickup - they're usually wider diameter. The 'B' is probably for 'bridge' position since it's probably F-Spaced where the 'N' pickup was in the neck position (duh).

Beyond that, I don't know what it is. Dimarzios usually have a number stamped on them.

Sorry I'm not more help.

Its defenitely not a TA pickup - the pole pieces on those things are huge!
I dont know what it is either I'm afraid. I am guessing its just a no-name pickup. It depends really, hows it sound?

I'd agree with Jay... i think that's a generic import 7-string humbucker. Two rows of small slugs and two-conductor wiring is usually the tip-off. It looks similar to the stock pickups that came with my Korean-built Dean EVO Special 7.

Word. I've never seen a serious humbucker (especially 7 string) that looks like that.
