Here's another pic
What are they out of? They look similar to 60s/70s Fender pickups with the grey fiber bobbin bottom and purple enamel coil wire, but I'm no expert on vintage pieces. These pics are from 71 and 74 Strats, which have teflon hookup wire, not cloth covered.

can both or either of you post (all) DCr readings on them for my archives ?
Couple set pix I have are numbered:
I also have a set numbered X269.
wire insulation is vinyl afaik.
Think 65 through 68 or 69 still had cloth wire. Could 7769 be a date stamp? If so they’re from the summer of Woodstock & the moon landing.
I’m guessing ‘69 transitional pickups - 68-style cloth wiring with 69-style stamp. Theoretically that’s possible and the final digits are usually the year on pickup stamps, I believe...
So that makes Doug's a 1921 model
The pics I posted aren't from pickups I have but pics I pulled off the internet after a search for grey bottom bobbins. I already knew that the grey bottoms and dark purple enamel wire were used in the 60s, but I didn't know when Fender quit using the fiber and went to plastic bobbins, or quit using enamel and went to polysol wire.
Good point... They must have introduced that with the changes c '72! Although a '21 Strat would be pretty sought after...
