Greetings all!
I need some help.
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!

To my knowledge this is the stock pickup that came with the guitar. Here are the details:

It has a Fender Custom Shop sticker
7.15 ohms
3.66 H (measured with EXTECH 380193 meter @ 1kHz)
The Q reading was 2.314 on the EXTECH 380193

I'll post some pics so you can have a look as well.

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.

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.

Cheers and welcome to the forum.
