    Take it apart and check the wiring wink

    Also check out some of the vintage guitar forums out there, older pickups will have old caps on them which should be easy to tell if you look for the pictures on them.

    sometimes when you open up a guitar you'll find evidence that the wiring has changed - ie a different sort of solder, or even small bits of wire sticking out of the solder
