I found this yesterday and sent the seller a note that his pickups have been "modified" but it's not mentioned in his description....and that he should

if you look at the back of the pups you can see that the pole pieces have either been replaced and/or are in backwards..

I'm curios if anyone else here notices other issues that I may not see..

as of now he's not responded to me or changed his description

Assuming that the magnets all have their original polarities, it does look like they've been repositioned.

If the magnets in the upper right bank of three were flipped over and moved to the lower left, and vice versa, the pickup should still work fine. If the magnets were repositioned in some other way, it could mess up the output of some or all strings.

If this is the original design with the CuNiFe magnets, the correct orientation and polarity is like...

awesome illustration..thanks..

I'm also leery of the pole pieces themselves...they almost look too new.

Bummer...in doing some research on your diagram it appears that Telenator has closed it's doors effective last January... I imagine the price on any existing ones will now go up

this is the real deal

I think there are some pretty good non CuNiFe designs out there. Lollars Regals come to mind.
