1962 Jaguar Pickups?

Post by SammyT » Wed Nov 13, 2019 1:08 pm

Hi, I just received these amazing Fender Jaguar pickups from an ebay auction.
It has gold brackets :w00t: and the seller told me they were from the sixties.
They are black bottom pickups so I figured they are pre cbs.
I was wondering if these pickups have original wiring. It has this vintage purple Gibson PAF wire on it.
All the reference pictures from pre cbs Jag pickups I can find are from 1964, and those have this orange wire.
The only reference I could find for a '62 pickup was this: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index ... d.1875574/
It looks like the same kind of wire as on my pickups.
The pair I have have 'flat' poles (they are not completely flat, but just a little staggered)
The neck pickup reads 7.1k and the bridge reads 7.3k.
I removed the pickup covers when the pickups arrived, but im too afraid to open them again, as I could damage them.
Does anyone have some information about pre CBS jaguar pickups?

Hi, I have a May 1962 Jaguar, so it’s pre CBS and pre L series
This jag is fully original, untouched solder joints

They are both Red/orange bobin, flat poles and black bottom
I didn’t mesure the impedance, as both are soldered.

Here is a pic of my pickups if it can help
took it during the cleaning/restauration of the jag

Thanks for the reply Johnny Jaguar!
It looks exactly the same as my pickups. :)
If it wouldn't be too much trouble, could you measure the impedance with a cable? (by turning up the volume and tone knobs and selecting the pickups with the selectors, and than connecting the multimeter to the ground and hot of the cable)
