Here is the top. I tried this thing out with a broadcaster bridge pup that is around 9k and the sound was as bland and unremarkable as I have ever heard.....

Maybe this pup would work well with a bridge pup that is much lower? I just want to get an idea of what this is so I can list it and move it on to someone else.

Maybe a Texas Special? I have no experience with the Twisted Tele pickups.

"I have no experience with the Twisted Tele pickups."

I would say def not a TT. They have 3 leads and have a taller bobbin than a std tele neck pup (a side pic would make that clearer). Also, IMO, a TT would not sound "bland". They are my fave T neck pickup.

With no distinct characteristics, it's going to be hard to ID.
Do you remember/know what it came out of or where you got it?
