rg765 owners....

Question for rg765 owners out there - Do you know what pickups originally came in this guitar?

My '89 yellow rg765 has a set of Duncan's in there now that I doubt are original to the guitar. Back when i bought the guitar the seller told me the person he bought it from claimed they were in fact the original pickups. He told me he highly doubted this was true....he seemed like a knowledgable guy and I tend to agree with him.

Anyway, does anyone know if it came with the HB2/SB1 combo that the rg565's came with, or something else? Would be interested in knowing from other owners what pickups are in their guitars now, or if they changed them out what was in there when they purchased the guitar.

I really don't know, bit think an F2/C2 combo would make the most sense.

Re: rg765 owners....

I looked at a bunch of pictures online and there were too many guitars that appeared to have the same pickups, which were not the HB2 like a 565. Almost looked like a V2 in the bridge. You should contact metalgod72, he has a couple of these.

The stock pickups was unmarked like the first that came on the early RG550/560s.
Still have them. And the single was really a singlecoil. They do not sound great.
