    If they are the stock ones they are:
    The Pickups are 3 oversized Alinco 3 pole piece magnets with a Styrene Blend used for the pickup covers, knobs and switch cap, and the PVA Pickguard material. The Reproduction of the original '54 pickups were wound by Abigail Ybarra, who has been making Fender pickups since the 1950's.

    Looks like someone swapped the pickguard out.

    Those look to be Classic Series 50's-60's.

    If you can get a DCr they would be around 5.6KΩ.
