    They look identical to a set from a 2003 American Strat which I sold recently.

    I've never seen American Standard or Series pickups with all 3 leads the same black/white?

    I think they're MIM Classic Series.....

    Definitely not Am Std. 87-96 had blue/white, red/white, blue/white leads. 97-08, same but yellow/white bridge pup, then 08-12 the white changed to black leads.

    594 usually appears on the Classic Series 70s pickups.
    It is a different code on the 50s and 60s due to the cover color. The actual pickups are the same spec for all 3 models.

    I agree with Guitarmageddon

    >Classic Series Made in Mexico Strat - 50s/60< They are REAL close to tone of 57/62's, or I say a MIM version of them.


    other than 70's would be different, in that they had AIII mags.



    Can you post DCr readings ?

    Never knew the 70s were AIII but white sharpie (54)594 with white covers have to be 70s.
    50s, 60s are 54172 with aged white covers.
    They are the part codes from the service diagrams.

    Classic Series 70's and 2006 Highway One, US Special Highway One 2002

    also 1999 & 2004 70's Stratocaster

    You are right Skinny, I didn't pay attention to that:
    Part Number# 0054594000

    50-60 are
    Part # 0054172000

    Hence that sharpie partial part #.

    Too bad they don't do that with all the pups. Just takes a second, there are handled by human's in the factory a few times over anyway .
