Your guitar is from the '65-'68 period, yes? I would think the 510 would drop right in, but it would be an expensive lesson if it didn't.
You'd probably be best just sticking with the Egmond pickup. Beck didn't play that guitar in Blow-Up because he thought it was an amazing guitar, he played a cheap plank (as it would have been regarded at the time) because he knew he was going to smash it and didn't want to waste a good one.
Edit: Oops - it's from '62-'65 according to this. That being the case, the vintage correct pickup would be the other one, but the advice would remain the same.
Thanks! Norbert at Musik Keller told me the 511 is the correct pickup for this guitar. It is a dual coil version of the 510.
Funny fact: In Blow-Up, the Yardbirds are meant to be portraying the band that The Who were at that time, hence Beck smashing a guitar. He adopted facets of this showmanship in the following months with the Yardbirds though, slamming his Les Paul into his Vox amps during noisy feedback sections or solos. _________________
