Correct Pups for a 'SF 420 FM'
I picked up a pretty rare S series the other day, an SF420FM. It is green flamed maple top and headstock (just paint on the stock I'm sure) with a ShortStop (or Gibraltar?) stop tailpiece. The neck is not a wizard. The serial number puts the guitar in '96 but I can't see a ref to it in catalogs from that year or years around that year.
The pickups are AH1 in neck and AH2 in bridge. But the kicker is that the AH1 has shiny pole pieces and slotted adjustable poles where the AH2 has black polepieces and hex adjustable poles. The two styles look funny together.
So does anyone know what the original pair of pickups were? I have Ibanez pups around so I can match either way. Or, I could go with a V1 and V2 setup. Even V7 and V8. But I'd like to get it as original as I can.
