    I have a late 80's Fender Precision bass that was Made in Japan.

    Does anyone know how to tell the difference between the Japan and USA pickups?

    the pickups in my bass appear to be alnico, they have cloth wiring and the brass ground plate underneath.

    could these be the USA pickups that were allegedly used in some Japanese fenders?

    any identifying marks i could look for?
