    Hi all. I'm cleaning out my stuff and I found this set of Jazz pups. The winding looks dark, almost black.

    The Bridge pup reads 75*75 (smudged where the star is).
    The Neck pup reads 7572_5 (not sure if anything goes where the underscore is).

    Here are some pics. I did the best I can.

    I think they're original Fender '75 but I'm not sure. Definitely 70's. The covers are original, I do not have the original leads.

    Thanks all!

    The pics aren't that great but they look like original 70's pickups.

    Is that a stamp number or a marker number? They didn't marker 70's pups, they stamped. Maybe they are USA or CS Reissue pups? They aren't MIM or MIJ, AFAIK.

    They are Stamped, not marker. I'll try better pics but the last one seems to be the clearest.
    Thx for your help Michael. After a few hrs of searching, I do think they are '75 originals. And I know what bass they came out of also. About 13 yrs ago I pulled em out of a beater.

    The flush mounted Alnico magnets, grey '70s style coil forms and black coated wire make me believe this is true. Just have to confirm the numbers.

    Oohhh yeah, definitely look to be original 70's.

    5-digits? I think that denotes mid to late 70's. You won't get exact years of course (the numbers were random).
