I inquired with Fender about whether the Vintera WRHB's are any different than the immediately preceding Classic Series and the rep wasn't certain but he did share with me a parts diagram. I can see that it still looks basically the same, construction wise. But its interesting that in addition to the bar magnet below the bobbins there are two additional bar magnets along the long sides of each bobbin. This bar magnet appears to take up the space previously taken by the foam coil. There is still a foam spacer at each end of the bobbins between the bobbin and the pickup cover. One other observation, my 2018 Fender WRHBs measure 8.1 DCR for the neck and 8.3 DCR for the bridge. The diagram I got shows a 7.8 K neck and 9.2 K bridge. I'm not a technical guru at all when it comes to pickups, but I have to wonder if these changes serve to brighten them up a bit (to me, even the "revoiced" reissues were to dark).
