Are the single coil push-pull and lg II the same pickups basically?

Not really. The same construction but the pickups on my 60's PP's are wound with heavier wire and have a lower resistance the the LeGrande pickups. They sound different also. Both sound great.

What's the difference between the student-model Emmons pickup and the pro-model pickup?

Steven,

The main difference it the height. The student model pickup is not as tall and as such has fewer windings. It also mounts directly to the plastic plate that is used to mount the tone and volume circuitry, rather than an adjustable plate, as is on the pro models.

So, with more windings, is the pro-model "hotter"? Does it sound better?
