    Good Afternoon/Evening,

    I pulled the pickups out of my Tele, they sound very balanced, not overly hot or "twangy" maybe broadcaster/nocaster territory. They had a silver reflective "Custom Shop" sticker on the bridge pickup.

    I had 10.53 measured on the bridge and 9.13 on the neck respectively for resistance checks.

    The pole heights were .193, .166 and .32 from tallest to shortest. Images below.

    Any help identifying which Fender Custom Shop pickup model these are is appreciated.

    Thank You,
    Jay

    Dang it, I’m terrible at guessing and I never win these contests!

    I’d say Texas specials with those resistance readings. I believe they have staggered magnets and white strings like the 62 ri

    Yup, CS Texas Specials. White string, copper baseplate, 3 wire neck.

    To be positive, could you post some close-up shots ??
