    I found this single-coil in a malmsteen style fanboy custom guitar i just took apart and since there are no stickers on this one i cant tell what exactly this is.

    The other 2 single coils Bridge and Neck are DiMarzio HS-3 but the middle pickup is the one in question (the one with the blue and white wire on the picture) Any idea?!

    Did a google search and that number appears to be the fender part number for the plastic bobbin, and has been wound many different ways. Doesn't look like you can get any more info then that with the number.
    DC coil measurements may narrow it down some, but it looks like one of those use if you like it kind of things, and probably has limited sale value because you can't prove what it actually is.
    I may be wrong though, it happens on a regularly.

    Fender American Standard neck. Older ones will have flat poles, later will be staggered.
