    Hi all.
    Anybody recognize these pu's?
    They came out of a 2012 American Standard Stratocaster but are not the originals apparently. 20171130_134159.jpg 20171130_134059.jpg

    Looks like stock Fender pickups to me.

    American Series possibly?

    Agreed. Who told you that they are not the originals?

    They look like Alnico V pickups from a slightly earlier American Standard. To me they would be an improvement on the Fat 50's that Fender fitted to the late Am Standards.

    Road Worn 50s or 60s Tex Mex.

    I was going to ask "why do you think that?", but then I remembered - don't the American Standard bridge pickups have those two strange screws sticking out of the bottom?

    Yes, the tone improver screws (?) and the American Standard/Series AlNiCos pre Fat 50s are usually handwritten 56205, 56206 & 56207 never 76714, 5 & 6 which are Road Worn Tex Mex part numbers. Strange thing is that the Jimmie Vaughan Tex Mex bridge does have the screws.
    That's Fender for you.

    The guy i bought it from a couple of weeks ago - but couldnt remember exactly what they were. They 'look' older than the age of the guitar. The poles are a bit rusty in places.
    I do however remember him mentioning something about tex-mex AND roadworn pu's.
