Need help identifying a pickup

I need help identifying a pickup set. The wiring colors are red, white, blue, black and bare. So, I have to assume they are Ibanez, but the only marking on the brass colored bottom plates are a R and F stamp. Oh and there are slugs on both the north and south (no adjustable pole pieces). I have no info on what they came out of or any other info or clues. Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks

Re: Need help identifying a pickup

Could be anything to be honest... are there any other markers on the bobbins etc.? F and R is probably for Front (Neck) and Rear (Bridge).

No other markings, stamps, stickers or clues whatsoever. But i hoped that it not having adjustable pole pieces and just slugs top and bottom might help ident these. thanks

Re: Need help identifying a pickup

No idea. I posted a craigslist ad looking for some pickups for a couple projects and I got a call from an old man who makes cigar box guitars. He said he couldn't use them and he'd mail me some humbuckers no charge. He said they were given to him and had no info on them at all. I didn't want to get my hopes up and glad I didn't. But would like to know if these are worth my time putting them in something or should just be tossed.

Re: Need help identifying a pickup

probably something from guitarfetish.com or guitarpartsonline.com . The f and R could be for f-spaced and regular spaced, do the pole pieces line up with one another ?

You could also check DC resistance, typically the higher DC resistant pickup is your bridge pickup.

Re: Need help identifying a pickup

These have to be Ibanez pickups. The only other maker who uses red, white, blue and black is Mighty Might but they tap red and blue together and these are tapped with white and black together as Ibanez does.
Using my ohm meter on the x1k setting I get 28 in series, 16 split and on the x10 setting I get a reading of 26 in series and 15 split.
The R stamped bridge (rear) pickup is F spaced. The F stamped neck (front) pickup is standard.
