  • Help Identifying pickups!

    Are these really strat pickups?

    I snagged a set of Strat-style pickups for free from my father in law to put in some cheap-o silvertone that I had. I'm now sellign the silvertone, and snagged the pickups out to see if they were worth anything.
    I was digging on a Fneder guitar forum and think these might be legitimage Fender pickups, but I'd like to know for sure.
    One pickup's wires are blue and white, another red and white, and another yellow and white.
    The bridge pickup has two screws between the E and A string's magnets, and the high E and B string magnets. All three have the same number on the bottom - 016730, and the bottom plastic plate has 5 holes, shaped square, square, circle, square, square.
    I haven't tested their output yet. I have a multimeter, will this work to test them?
    Any help and info would be greatly appreciated!

            One picture speaks a thousand words (and takes the guesswork out of it). Let's see the top AND the bottom of said pickups...

                Those look like AlNiCo pups of some type.

                The scews and springs look like Fender screws and springs too.

                  Those look like older American Standard pickups back before they went back to staggered polepieces.
