    Definitely a Fender pickup. Not sure about the White number. Could be a Tex-Mex. I have a set at home I can check.

    Thank you, good sir! Also wouldn't a Tex-Mex be on an Am. Special or MIM, not an AM STD? o_O

    56206 is the part number for the middle pickup from a 2008-2011 American Standard. I don't know if any other models use it, but I have an 08 and that's the same number (and handwriting). It's an Alnico V...and a great pickup in my opinion.
