The guy claims they are out of an 80ish Electra LP copy. Is that correct and are these good pickups?

Can anyone even confirm if these are Electra pickups?

They don't look like anything I've seen, but I lean towards the post 1975 offerings, and prior to 1975 it is a mixed bag of things found in pretty much all Japanese guitars. Further muddying the water is that there were other guitars marketed as 'Electra', most notably the PCM (Pacific Coast Music) models, which are largely undocumented, and there were other instruments produced post 80s using the Electra name, possibly made in Korea or elsewhere. Most of the guitars you'll see on this site are from SLM (St. Louis Music).

The one pickup with the square bobbins looks like a single coil in a humbucking size pickup, which I've heard were found on some of the hollow bodied guitars, late 60's to early 70's.

With the hacked up leads, and no way of testing their sonic abilities, I would price them accordingly, probably $5 - $10 each, but you know what they say about opinions! Best of luck.
