How can you test a pair of used pickups?

  1. I see a pair of Fender CS 60's pickups for sale for $120 obo. A fair bit cheaper than retail, most likely used.

    How can I make sure that they work, short of installing them in my bass?

    Get an ohm meter and measure the resistance. Although not a perfect test, it will give you an idea of whether or not the coil has been damaged.
