Pickups in your RG770DX???

I've just been playing my RG770DXLB and noticed for the first time that the pickups in it are:

Neck: IBZUSA F2
Middle: IBZUSA C2
Bridge: IBZUSA F2

According to the catalogues on IbanezRules, they should be F4/C3/F2. All my pickups are blue and match the guitar as they should, plus the guy I bought the guitar off was the original owner and told me that the guitar was all original.

Anyone else got "non-standard" pups in their RG770DX???? Or know why I've not got them in mine????

hello!

my RG770DX red has the same pickups!: F2 C2 F2.

and also, the original owner told me that the guitar was original.
i think that in Europe these guitars came with F2 neck and bridge pickups.

regards.

Strange! I have the F4 and F2 combination in my red one. I have swapped them out for yellow TZ/PAF, though.

Thanks Dani - I wonder why they used different pickups in Europe? Crazy marketing people!

iirc, earlier ones had f2/c2/f2, later ones f4/c2/f2. It's not a europe/usa difference.

IF you were to sell all of those right now, as is, much would you realistically want for them?

Re: Pickups in your RG770DX???

realistically? well, the first 3 are dead mint, the 4th has a little wear on the neck as you can see. the violet one there has the aftermarket pickups. i would say probably $2000 for the 4 of them, maybe $2200. (That's if i were to sell them, which i am not yet, but will be soon.)

gmoney3, please let me know when you sell, I am seriously interested in the red one.

*fingers and toes crossed.

If that's really a mint one I'd give you $800.

Re: Pickups in your RG770DX???

I'm sure there would be people willing to take all 4 of them at once in a bulk deal too
