Links don't work.
DP159 is the right moniker for a non f-spaced Evo bridge pickup. Perhaps you can describe what the pickup looks like, or go to DiMarzio.com and compare yours to their image:

I enhanced the images on my computer, and I can definately say I don't think it couldn't be an Evo...
It sure looks like one to me! Black baseplate, the right bobbins, it definately could be.

Anyone know if he could test the voltage or resistance to see?
A DP159 is supposed to be 404mV, with a DC resistance of 13.84k.

Looks to me like the only difference is the colour of the pole pieces.

oddly the Evo pictured on Dimarzio.com has got chrome-black poles, and the one bought by Jawi88 has got kind of matt-black poles... doesn't it?
