Is this really an Electra pickup?

Electra made lots of guitars with different manufactures and different eras. But I am 95% sure that isn't an Electra pickup. The only 5% is reserved for PCM electras which most of us know very little about, and the off chance there was a special model I don't know about. We run into odd ball guitars every now and then. But I have never seen an electra with a pickup like that.

It looks like one of those "dimarzio powered" pickups from around that era - made by dimarzio for cheap import guitars to say they come with dimarzio's installed. It was an optional upgrade when you ordered the guitar. They had non-adjustable poles. They were not especially hot pickups either. You see them every now and then on ebay, and they aren't that special. But it may not even be that. Other pickups looked like that too. Most all of them are really cheap pickups (all I recall). I would ask the individual what Electra model it came off of - I don't think it is an Electra pickup at all.
