Jem Pickup identification

I am wondering where on the pickups (humbuckers and middle single coil) you can find some numbers or something to identify the pickups. I want to make sure my pickups where stock and I am skeptical about the middle pickup. There are no numbers on the back of it, is it possible to identify it at all?

Re: Jem Pickup identification

All my early Jem middle pickups have no markings that I can find as well. This includes 2 LNGs, an SK, & 2 RBs.

Yeah, I think tyhe only way to figure these out is to measure the total impedance and see what it matches on the Dimarzio website.

Re: Jem Pickup identification

Anyone can correct me here:

Early JEM (LNG, SK's, DY's, RB, VBK, GMC, PMC): PAF Pro neck & bridge - "JEM" single coil.
JEM DBK & 90th = Breed neck & bridge - "JEM" single coil.
JEM VWH, DNA, 10th = Evolution neck & bridge - "JEM" single coil (newer VWH's have the Evo single?).

I have not been able to find any DiMarzio number for the "JEM" single coil but was told by them that the Ibanez S1 is very close.
