What kind of PU is this ?

Just picked up a 1997 Ibanez S270. The bridge PU is replaced by the former owner at a guitar store years ago. And he dont remember wich PU who was installed. I took the PU out, but there is nothing written on it. Has anybody got a clue ?

X2, unscrew it and look under it if you see any info

but, IMHO, it looks like a "entry line" remplacement. do you know why it was replace to begin with?

EDIT: After a little bit of research, it does look like the original pickup, an Ibanez PowerSound PSND2

Re: What kind of PU is this ?

After looking at some pictures on google, i agree that it looks like the guitar still has the stock PU. The "replacement" most have been a lie. But i still think that the bridge PU sounds much better overall than the the two other PUPS.

Got it for $100 with hardcase. Looked very bad. After some heavy TLC it become quite ok. (used meguiars wax with a polish machine on the body)
