    These came in a used 2008 American Standard P. Anybody know what they are? I don't think they are Fender pickups, unless someone decided to put mysterious markings on them. They measure about 11.2k

    Is that a doorbell?

    Ha! That gave me my morning laugh! A doorbell or a telephone!

    For those of you wondering, that is the coil assembly for the "mystery" pickup in a 1966-1968 Ampeg AEB-1 Scroll Bass.

    I meant to delete the post but I deleted the pics instead. They are just stock Fender pickups. I guess they scrawl a bunch of junk on the back with a silver marker.
