Three of these were given to me in exchange for some wiring mods. They are three wire, red and white that come off the coil, and a bare ground wire that is attached to the metal base plate. The pole pieces are staggered in a way that I'm not familiar with. They sound great and appear to be old. I've attached three pic's . Any info would be greatly appreciated.

They are out of a Japanese Strat clone,probably 1970s.Similar types used in many brands of the time.Check out the examples in the link.

These three pickups are 8.26,8.14, and 7.69k and that is how I would arrange then in my pick guard. The first two have even heights on the pole pieces. The last one has them high to low in an even progression as shown in this pic. I've never seen this before. What gives? Any thoughts?

The previous owner may have pressed the poles to achieve that profile, I dunno. Anything is possible when you're dealing with used gear.
