Greetings all! <br /> I need some help.<br /> I have a pickup in a 2003 American made fender tele. It's my favorite tele bridge pickup. And I've tried quite a few lately. I want to know what this things is, so I can get another one for another guitar. And I'm having a really hard time so I thought I'd ask you guys!<br /> <br /> To my knowledge this is the stock pickup that came with the guitar. Here are the details:<br /> <br /> It has a Fender Custom Shop sticker<br /> 7.15 ohms<br /> 3.66 H (measured with EXTECH 380193 meter @ 1kHz)<br /> The Q reading was 2.314 on the EXTECH 380193<br /> <br /> I'll post some pics so you can have a look as well. <br /> <br /> Thanks so much!

Everything points directly to a '51 Nocaster bridge pickup: the top flatwork, flush mag poles, black cord wrap, black and yellow cloth leads, and zinc-plated steel base plate.<br /> <br /> DCR and H readings don't match Fender's advertized specs for the '51 Nocaster pickup, but I have seen quite a variance on pickup specs for Fender stuff--even for CS-labeled units.

If you send an email to Fender Customer Service (include a few pics...not a link) they're pretty good at replying in a week or so.<br /> <br /> Cheers and welcome to the forum.
