    I settled on these in a flurry of parts swapping 4,5 years ago so need to confirm these are the 2000 era USA Strat pickups I think they are. Many thanks in advance!

    I see nothing to indicate that they aren't...

    Late 2000 era.
    The wire colors on the American Series/Standard changed sometime around 2007. Up to then the hots wired to the switch were white and the colors were grounds soldered to the volume pot case. Yours are the later black to ground and colors to switch version.

    Many thanks, guys!

    While I'm bothering you, what can you tell me about the type of alnico magnets these have & where this specific pickup set falls in the range of overdrive, it's suitability etc.

    I play straight thru to my DAW and Garageband and I unfortunately have zero ear for the universe of strat tones. I'm more of a clean tone player so these kinda stuck with me.
