This post is very confusing.  Really not sure what you want.  Can you include a picture of your bass?  In 2010, the 60th year anniversary goes back to 1950.  The first Precision was sold in 1951!  Also, none of them had rosewood necks until much later.  You also mention 1964, so please add some clarity to your post.

Further, why do you want to change the pickups?

Peace

Davo

The serial number indicates it's a 2011 model.  in 2011 Fender celebrated 60 years of the Precision bass and every bass of that year had a commemorative neck plate.  This does not make them an Anniversary model. 

There was a special 60th anniversary precision bass - the Blackguard Blond model - but yours isn't one.

Your bass is a standard US model from that year. It comes with the standard 61276/7 split coil pickups. From 2012 on, Fender fitted Custom Shop 62s instead. You can buy the customer shop pickups separately so if you wanted to upgrade then this would be a good start.

As far as I know, there is no such thing as a 64 precision pickup.

Yes the Custom Shop 62s sounds quite a bit different to those in the 2011 model, more rich and vintage sounding whereas the 2011s I found to be more scooped and modern sounding. As the 62s are my all time fave I’ll happily recommend them.

Just put them in my two recent builds, bloody epic things!

How does the (more expensive) Vintage '63 pickup sound in comparison?

They're 1 better.  ;)

being a bit more serious, I didn't know about the 63s and at UK prices they're a tenner more as you say. 

Without hearing them,  all I could do is compare the graphics,  63 first then 62

And I know how much you love yours précision in fact I became a precision player because of many interesting things you say about then .

my 2013 Am Stnd P has the custom shop 62s and they sound damn good.

But my 2013 MIM P bass also sounds pretty good imho, dunno what pups are in that
