    Are the tops of the pole pieces beveled or flat?

    Based on the “048614” branded into the bobbin, and the white writing, my money's on pre-2008.

  6. I'll go with that as I'm far from an expert. Thank you.

  7. Anyone interested in this pickup, be advised- probably not 2013 but pre-2008. Price drop

    Nor am I but I do know that the stock pickup in 2008-2011 American Standard P’s have beveled pole piece tops and 2012-current are coming with the Custom Shop ‘62 pickup stock. This is a nice pickup; much better than the 2008-2011’s.

    Lol thanks, I guess I’m a few circles that also makes you “the”. Did you once play with a UK band called the Clash?
     
  12. No but I saw them play in NYC

    Great name...one of my favorite bands in the late '70s. Hopefully you've never smashed a p-bass on stage.

    ... the pre-'08 pups and the post '08 pups were both wound on the 048614 bobbins ... the early American Standards (pre 2000), and possibly into the American Series run show up as #'s 56003/4 set in my records ... then '04 I show the American Series P using the 61276/7 set during the S-1 Switch 'era' ... I also have records of this set showing up in at least some of the later run of the Hwy Ones, prior to their being discontinued ... tends to further confirm what is above (pre-08), although I did have a couple reports of the 61276/7 wandering into the '08-'12 stretch on a random short run ... it is Fender after all ;)

    American Standards in 2008 had the 56003/56004 bobbins.

    EDIT: at least, that is, mine did.

    Thanks for adding ... 56003/4 is a part # for pickups, not bobbins ... the number engraved into the pups would be the bobbin # (048614), pup/part #'s are the white writing ... it doesn't surprise me though that yours was using the 3/4 set, there was a lot of changes taking place during the transition back to the 'New' American Standards ... it could even have been such a thing that early '08's got one set, late '08s the other .... not much would surprise me, as I said, it is Fender ... ;)

  19. Ok, back to my SALE- Precision pickup, 2008 or so, works perfectly. Extremely reasonable at $45 shipped. American Standard, nice pickup
