Not to pick on it, but is the middle pup cover correct?? I don't remember the area where the wires go through being pink. I thought that part was black on the originals.
I'm sure someone else who knows better will chime in, but I can't tell if it's black or pink in the catalogue, but the shade of the middle pickup matches the neck pickup exactly and the neck pickup looks like the original. I do think that in time I'm going to swap out the pup set for some new pink diMarzio's, but I may not do that as I am particularly fond of the tone out of this neck pickup.

Your right, it's hard to tell with any pics online. Some look black and some look pink.

I think it's supposed to look like this:

Yeah, I think you're right. Doesn't bug me The thing that does puzzle me is "why would someone replace a DiMarzio with an IBZ USA F1? Seems like an odd move, but I guess the previous owner and I had different taste.

Re: NGD! My first Jem!

Here is a pic of my jems. And you can se the middle pup on the FP has no black area.
The pups look orange in every picture a take. But is faded pink.

Don't know about the F1, but the F2 sounds a billion times better than paf pro's or any other dimarzio, btw The IBZUSA pickups are Dimarzio's

Well Paf Pro's might not be that high output pickup like a Evo's but it would be a stretch to say they don't sound good.

Nothing like popping the Jem cherry than with a 77FP! Nice one Saxopwn! Yours does have a unique pattern layout. Really dig the headstock blue flower. Sweet!
