    Hello,

    Since I could never find the specs of these pickups and I replaced them for a set of Texas Specials.. I now can measure them so here are the readings.

    NECK: 4.11 ohms
    MIDDLE: 5.86 ohms
    BRIDGE: 5.75 ohms

    There it is...

    I'm sorry but that's not much help at. Approximately 90% of all pickups Fender makes overall are vintage oriented in someway duplicating some specific sound ex AVRI52 the sound of a early Telecaster from 1952.

    Suggest you take some pictures of the pickups with the cover off so you can see the copper wire and also a picture of underneath of the pickups.

    There might be something to determine at least by looking at shade of copper wire has, if it's a ceramic or regullar AlNiCo poles etc.

    sdahe - "vintage style single coils" doesn't tell us anything! We need to see photos of the pickups themselves, Fender makes like 10-15 different pickup sets that are considered vintage style...

    Are they pickups from a Classic Series 50s or 60s Strat?

    Are you talking about the pickups in the Vintage reissue series?

    In that case again the picture is needed. To determine if it is a 57/62 pickup or something from the pure vintage series.

    And please don't just repeat "Vintage style single coil" that's no help at all.

    I think this refers to the Classic Series 50s/60s - this is how Fender names them in their specs.

    Well that says limited edition 54s so I assume that is what those are.

    But that doesn't really help to determine which ones the OP was talking about.
