    I know this bridge and bridge pickup is not original but the bridge looks old..I know its been on there for at least 24 years. Any idea what kind it is? No logo at all or numbers. Also the bridge pickup, again not original i think but have no idea what it is. Maybe the little bumps on the side is a tell tale? again, no numbers or name on it. Thanks for any info!

    Import bridge, the pickup seems like a Fender '52 reissue

    keep in mind that I know for a fact both are over 20 years old..I've had the guitar that long. Also forgot to mention it reads out a 9K.

    Fender '52 telecaster reissue with the lead pickup that looks like yours are manufactured since the early 80s, import tele copies were already there in the 70s...
