Get over it was rewound. Facts are All pickups will need to be rewound in their life. To me and ALL My Years experience, re wound pickups sound as good or better than the 50+ year old originals. It's the Alnico magnets and the year they were made and the years of use that makes the Strat Sing!
This has new leads also. 1 part has a little heat shrink tape in 1 spot. The black cloth wire. So this pickup can be used in Neck, Middle, Bridge.. Just cut wire the length.
