Best & hottest sounding Set I ever had from Fender Ever from 1964 Folks****
Pickups are 100% original and have never been apart they still have the original masking tape on the leads .
Pickups sound Unreal Real Deal Vintage PRE Tone we All Seek! Need! And Love!
They are well balanced . the read ......Neck = 6.68..... middle = 6.11..... Bridge = 6.17 .......the black bottom has a Sept 64 stamp the other two do not have any dates...(which is common) When fender went to Grey they started putting dates in pencil, for a short time in 1964 they tried the Yellow Ink date stamp, but that really didn't work, had black bobbin pickups since 1954-1964.. No date on them during them years. You had to go by pickup readings, polarity of magnets, and 1954-1955 had higher D magnet instead of higher G as now
As be in a $20,000+ Strat.
Nice to get a Perfect Set. Perfect looking set at that!
In 1964 Fender had Black Bobbins, and later switch to Grey Bobbins Grey. These are same Tone as 1963!
