    I was looking at the specs for the fender custom 60's shop pickups and was wondering if anyone knows if the two are the same size at the bridge and neck or different. I wanna put em in my SX and wanna know if they would fit.

    I have these, let me measure them and I will post back.
    They are killer pickups for more of a vintage tone.

    Neck pickup appears to be 3 37/64ths
    Bridge " " " " 3 23/32nds (46/64ths)
    The bridge pickup is a little longer than the neck.
    when I put these in my MIM jazz I had to route the pickup cavity under the pickup, not the body, to make room for the wires.
    The bridge is about 9/64ths longer .
    Measurements may vary by a couple of 64ths as I used a steel machinists rule and my eyes but are very close.

    No problem.
    I did fail to say that the neck pickup fit just fine, the bridge (I know what I already said above) was a very tight squeeze in the hole lenghtwise but it did JUST fit.
