For those of you who are unfamiliar, this is the first time Fender has remade the original vintage spec Wide Range Humbucker with CuNiFe rod magnets since the last original Seth Lover designed models were made in the late 70s. As you probably know, the reissue models were not the same and basically PAFs under the hood. This new version was from the neck position (but could be used in the bridge too) and has a reading around 10.6k. Also included are the mounting screws and springs! Also note these were paired with 1meg audio pots just like in the vintage models. Here’s the mention of the CuNiFe magnets from the American Original 70s Telecaster Custom on Fender’s website. The Telecaster® Custom was discontinued in 1979 and real CuNiFe-magnet pickups disappeared with them.

It measures 10.66 on the meter and is in excellent working condition. Sounded great when still on the guitar. The original wires were desoldered right against the pots and are full-length with no splices (8.5). The original chrome cover has scuffs and scratches – perfect for your relic project! This part was removed from a genuine American made Fender Telecaster Deluxe. The serial number was “519292”, the neck had a 1974 date code and the pots dated to 1973.
