FDP Forum / The 'Pup' Tent / Custom pickups bought on ebay..or are they?



Aug 10th, 2015 07:50 AM   Edit   Profile  

I bought these pickups as "custom shop flat poles"..knowing they wer staggered, but took a chance on their quality. they have a fender CS sticker,black bobbins, purple wire with blue and red dots on back of bobbin plates. They sound pretty freaking good. I would like to know what model pickups they are for my own edification. I am posting the completed auction so you may look at the picks. Not selling anything here..just looking for info. Thanks in advance http://www.ebay.com/itm/221836521071?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

They look like CS Texas Specials to me but once they are out of an original package it can be difficult to tell them apart.

Was there a custom shop sticker on the bottom of the pups?

Click the link in post one, click on 'see original listing,' and check the images in the eBay listing.

I have no doubt people use fake FCS stickers, they'd be easy to reproduce.

Like Hammond101 says, they look like Texas Specials. If you could measure the DC resistance with a multimeter, it would then be easier to be more confident about that.
