The pickups might be V6 and as Petie says you can check that by cheking if the pole pieces are adjustable.
It seems really weird as if the neck is Japanese then the whole guitar might be and if that's Japanese, then the pikups must be something better than the powersounds.
I'm really lost here but apart from lacking the V7/S1/V8 pickups this guitar specs as RG450.
With the humbuckers 6 of the 12 pole pieces have a screw thread head - is that what you mean or where you perhaps meaning hex (allan) heads (as I've seen on some)!
