    Can Anyone Identify these Pickups?



    Anyone know what these are? Vintage Fender or a modern reproduction? They came in a Standard P Bass where someone swapped out the originals for these. Thanks!

    If they're both marked with the same penciled inscription I'd say they were vintage Fender coils. The cloth push-back leads are consistent with the era.

    Thanks for the info. I have looked at other vintage precision pickups and have seen a numbered stamp (the same font as what's on the sticker) stamped on the back of the pickup usually indicating date. I haven't seen a sticker like this on the ground/shield plate. The dates on mine don't have a discernible year on either pickup. So basically, I haven't seen any vintage pickups that have the pencil date with no year and a sticker with the fender number font on the shield/ground plate, so I'm trying to find out of anyone else has seen that before. Granted I've only seen about 10 vintage pickups.
