    I'm looking to try and identify a pair of humbuckers I got in an HH strat I purchased.

    The bridge position has the number 63274 written on it and the neck has 59318.

    They were in a 2003 American Stratocaster HH that did have stock Black Cobra / Sidewinder but they were swapped out at some point in the past.

    The guitar has wiring issues so I'm not certain on these readings but the bridge reads about 8.8 and the neck is 7.9.

    Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.

    That's very much appreciated Skinny.

    From your info, I've been able to identify the neck pickup as being a Fender Atomic II neck pickup. The stock DCR is 7.9 which is exactly what my reading was for the one on my guitar. It does indeed look like the bridge humbucker is a Black Cobra from the number written on it. Only issue is the reading is nowhere near the 16+k output I've seen attributed to it.

    I'll get the guitar into a tech workshop and check the wiring. I suspect it's been tinkered with over the years or the super switch needs replacing.

    Thanks.
