    Hi, I bought a used pair of Fender Custom Shop Jazz pups off Ebay. Now the seller she's not an expert in pickups, so she doesn't know if these are original or not. I need your help identifying if these are authentic. The string spacing is 19 mm on both, but both pups are the same size. Also it's impossible to take it out of the cover, it's melted or glued in. The packaging does look authentic.

    Here are the pictures:

    I just bought a new set for my bass and I'm looking at them in the box right now. The wires on your pu's appear to be the wrong colour and coated in plastic. Mine have original 60's style Formvar black and white cloth wire and they are dipped in wax. Also the foam cushions I received are stuck to brass ground plates which would sit in the bottom of the cavity. The covers on mine move freely and can be removed with no problem.

    The packaging states:

    DC Resistance 7.4K

    DC Resistance 7.1k

    :meh: Hope this helps.
