RG350DX pickup mystery . . .

Hi everyone, I'm a new guy here!

I hope someone can clear this up for me. I recently bought an Ibanez RG350DX in brand new condition off of Craigslist for $250, and when I say brand new condtion, I mean brand new condition. Spotless and flawless!

When I went to buy it, in the heat of trying it out and generally bull****ting with the seller who was a real nice guy, I failed to notice that the pickups in it do not have the customary INF3, INFS3, INF4 lettering on the pickups. I didn't notice it until the deal was done and I had the guitar home--this is my first Ibanez so I'm not that familiar with them anyway.

Now I don't know know kind of pickups are in it and I really don't want to pull it apart (yet). The present ones really scream and sound very much like Dimarzios that I have in some of my other guitars, but I'd like to know if they are stock Infinity pickups or what.

My question is this, I guess, were the pickups in all RG350DXs labeled as above, or did some versions come without the lettering? I've found versions on Google image search with the labels and some without so I'm totally mixed up.

I hope a resident RG350DX expert can clue me in.

Thanks!

Re: RG350DX pickup mystery . . .

I'm not 100% sure but I think under in the neck heel joint theres a year the guitar was made. Once you have that do some research on the pickups of the year that guitar was made and what pickups it had. I have a 350DX also and it rocks except I have a sustainer and FGI pickup in it. If you don't want to tear off the neck your going to have to take out the pickups and I think it says what they are on the bottom of them.
