    Anybody recognise this, in size it looks like a 50s P bass size/form factor.

    It has three mount screws, with encapsulated nuts for the screws

    Pretty intricate sorta thing. The mags look very dark, so presuming some ceramics?

    Looks well made...

    But if it did sound awesome, what is it doing detached of it's original bass?

    It's about twice the physical size and weight of a Tele pickup, it is a bass pickup

    Evans maybe?
    Evans was a Canadian pickup company. I was once sold a similar bass pickup & the shop told me it was an Evans. I didn't get a box or documentation or anything as it was sold to me out of a repair shop's parts bin so I can't vouch for that being one. It did sound pretty powerful.
