hello all, i recently picked up an ivory stoptail USA standard wolfgang and the white coils on the zebra pickups are facing each other rather than both of the white coils facing forward. out of the many photos i've checked out of other wolfgangs online the vast majority of them are with both white coils facing forward, but i have seen 3 or 4 (out of probably a hundred or so) with the white coils facing each other, including a couple of nice high-end custom shop models, so i'm confused. i checked with peavey and they said to the best of their knowledge they all faced forward...thoughts? does it even matter? thanx in advance for your input.

Well obviously work was done on one of the pups or it may have been replaced. This is one situation where it does not really matter even if the pup was replaced as only on pup was used during the run of the Peavey Wolfgang. So if it was replaced and another dropped in it would just about be impossible to prove it was not the original pup. Here is the one catch for those that really know the guitar well, in April 02 all the pups were stopped being wound in the US and all were produced in Korea and there is a difference in tone.

The original owner probably like the LOOK of them that way and switched the neck pu, tonally there is very little difference if any.
