Checking serial number on dimarzios

Okay, My 560 has an unknown dimarzio in the humbucker position on an HSS set up. I want to just check what pickup that is in there and I read on dimarzios site that you can look on the back of the pickup and get a number that you can email to them to find out what pickup you have.

Has anyone done this? Where exactly is the serial number located?

If I can diy it, I want to so I dont have to waste any money on something trivial.

Re: Checking serial number on dimarzios

I bought a frankenstrat a while back which had a bunch of DiMarzios in. I opened it up and literally put into google search the number i found on the back of the pick-up; 'DiMarzio DP###' and it took me directly to the pickup's page on the DiMarzio site. Turns out I had a PG injector , a YJM HS-4 and a fast track 1!

Maybe try that?

Oh cool, so Dimarzio DOES put DP### on the back on the pup. I'll have to do it once I change the strings on it. The fretboard leaves some dirt on my fingers so I need to clean that as well. I'll use that as my project for this weekend lol

Those "DP" numbers are actually the model numbers. But, yes--they will dictate which model pickup it is.
