Can you identify these pickups?

Hi,
I need your help identifying these pickups. They are originally fitted into Japan made RG450LTD (the one with mirror pickguard, dot inlays, TRS trem). Are these INF? or Vs?



Regards,
Nizar

additional info: the lead has 3 cores only (+ve, -ve, ground?)

Re: Can you identify these pickups?

i'm pretty sure those are INF pickups; i checked out all my old pickups and the only ones i could find with green and red jackets on the wire were inf1 and inf2 humbuckers. well, those and XH humbuckers which these obviously are not. the conductor scheme works like this: red=series, white=tap, shield. hope that helps.

INF pickups have hexagonal screws.
At least, the ones on my 97 RG470 were!

I Think it's a pair of V6f pickups...

Can you give us the year of your guitar ?

Re: Can you identify these pickups?

sorry for late reply guys. I was away for the past 2 days.

I do think those are INF but as scanlan said, INF have hex screw (I have 'em on my 2003 RGT42). Earlier INF maybe?

I dont really know the exact year of the guitar but it could be between 2000-2001. Browsing thru ibanez parts list, revealed these part number for RG450LTD:
PICK UP (FRONT) 3PU1 J1 1 B1
PICK UP (CENTER) 3PU1 J2 1 B2
PICK UP (REAR) 3PU1 J1 1 B2

2003 RGT42 (korean) with INF1 & INF2 have these part number:
PICK UP (FRONT) 3PU1C3034R
PICK UP (REAR) 3PU1C3044

A 2003 RG1570 with V7 & V8 have these part number:
PICK UP (FRONT) 3PU1J1V7B1
PICK UP (CENTER) 3PU1J1S1B2
PICK UP (REAR) 3PU1J1V8B2
Earlier V7 & V8 share the same part number as above.

A 2000/2001 RG450AH (Japan) have these part number:
PICK UP (FRONT) 3PU1J11B3
PICK UP (CENTER) 3PU1J21B4
PICK UP (REAR) 3PU1J11B4

A 2001 RG350LTD (Japan) have these:
PICK UP (FRONT) 3PU1J11B3
PICK UP (CENTER) 3PU1J21B4
PICK UP (REAR) 3PU1J11B4


So, I come up with a conclusion that :
3PU1 J1 1 B1 = INF1 (Japan)
3PU1 J1 1 B2 = INF2 (japan)
3PU1J11B3 = INF3 (Japan)
3PU1J11B4 = INF4 (japan)

those pickups with 'C' in it could be made in korea or china (new INF and Powersound have 'C' in the part number)
