    In case any of your are wondering what the mysterious "Fender® Designed Alnico Single-Coil"
    pickups are in the 2020 CV Strats, I have a bit more info. I'm not sure of the magnets, but my pickups measured at:

    Bridge 6.48k
    Middle 6.08k
    Neck 5.78k

    Nice vintage specs and more important, they sound great to my ears. Just passing along... Fiesta Red Strat.png

    Seems like you have the 50's model ??
    (540) Fiesta Red,

    A III mags then, DCr match as well for those, with what you list.

    Same ones they started out with in those (CV's). June 2008

    Interesting. A3s are my favs and these feel and sound pretty similar to the A3 pups in my other Strat.

    I had assumed that they would be A5 because I had heard it’s the same pickups in the current 50s, 60s and 70s CV models.

    I think they are same spec as Tonerider Safaris. Great pickups.

    I concur that the CV pickups are equivalent to Toneriders, same source.
