I have an American Fender Deluxe HSS. I bought it used from Guitar Center 6 or 7 years ago and when I bought it, the guy said "You're gonna love those pickups". He may have even said the name of them, but for the life of me, I can't remember what he said. Then again, he could've just been blowing smoke to get me to buy it.

ANYWAY, how can I tell what kind of pickups they are? Do I need to take the pickguard off and pull them out and look for a brand/model#? Can you typically find that printed on the pickups somewhere?

Usually, there's either a sticker or some sort of logo on the base plate of the pups to give a sort of indication as to who made them.


Sometimes it's a bit harder and you need to examine the construction (spacers, bobbins, wire colors/type etc...) to narrow down the results.

Opened it up and looked on the bottom of the pups. Looks like they're just standard fender noiseless.

Thanks for your help!
