Picked up a RG1570!

I wasn't in the market for a guitar but it's very rare to see any prestige Ibanez pop up on this island so when I found this one I had to act. Got it for $500 Canadian. I think it's an 08 judging by the serial number and it has a black suede finish. Kind of feels like rubber even. Anyway I have been looking at specs and pictures but I can't find one with the white and black pick ups like mine so I'm just wondering has any came stock like this or were these likely installed at a later date? Also if there stock what type of pickup are these ?

I cant seem to upload the pictures from my phone it sais they exceed my limit. Uploaded the pictures to DropBox. Hopefully this link will work.

Those pickups arent stock, the best way to tell is to gently take them out and flip em (if you have enough spare cable on the pick up) and see which serial they have. They look to be Dimarzio pickups

Nice guitar anyway!

Looks like I got a Tonezone, air Norton and true velvet. Great pickups but I already have this configuration in 2 of my J Customs.

Okay, yes they're great pickups! But if you have them in two more guitars. which guitar with this combo sounds best?

Nice! I got mine (an '06 J Craft 1570L, because the world isn't fair and somebody has to be lefty, after all) and threw Evos in the bridge and neck. It was as close as I got to a JEM until I found Rich. Mine is a workhorse, it's been through hell and back and still keeps fighting.

I hope yours provides you the same longevity I have with mine!
