    I could swear that's a Rickenbacker bridge replacement pickup...

    If I recall correctly, the Rickenbacker replacement pickup was based on the Hawkbucker.

    I've had both, the Hawkbucker was around 10K resistance and about 1/8" longer magnets than the 8K Ric bridge replacement pup. Tone wasn't bad but not as good as lots of other things. Mine didn't fit into a normal humbucker ring very well, it was a little too long and I had to take a file to the ring.
