    These are staggered pickups. I’ve got so many parts, it’s hard to remember where they came from.
    Number on the back is 016730.
    I’m thinking they may be American standard pickups, but not sure.

    Look like either Fender Mexico or Fender Japan plastic bobbin Alnico V pickups - they used same in all 3 positions with no RWRP middle......lack of any white sharpie markings or wires other than white/black make them not USA.....

    Might be from a Mexico Classic Series 50s/60s/70s Strat?

    Thanks!! Think I may have bought some CS 50s or 60s pickups on here at some point.. it’s all a blur.

    used the bridge pickup in another strat and it sounds great

    Here's a suggestion for storing unused pickup inventory.

    Buy some of the boxes larger power tubes would ship in. Wrap the pickup in some thin bubble wrap or something similar, label the box, and tuck them away in a larger cardboard box.

    Keeps the mags apart, protects the coil, and you'll always know what you have and where it's at. :)

    Thank you all for the help. CS50s or 60s sounds right.. and sounds like something I would have bought, since I love my CS50.

    Who knows what I’ll find next..
