That's because until recently these models were made by Cortek in Surabaya, now this "Vintage Modified" model is made in China. But the pickups could somehow be the same, always possible.
Maybe you could find a couple bridge humbuckers from some Squier 51s. A lot of guys take them out; I feel they are mistaken doing that but those pups are out there if you wanna try a "Wanted to Buy" ad here.
Check out the P-90'd version of that guitar, also, preferably a used Indonesian one.
Have you actually seen and tried one of these that was made in China?
And if so, was there any specific deficiencies in the quality of the one made in China?
I know there was a thread here recently where some other folks' posts seemed to imply some were made in China, but the post that implied that was referring to a different Squier model, not a Vintage Modified Custom or Vintage Modified Custom II.
