Pickup ID question

I just took apart my RG to redo a couple wiring things and wonder if anybody can help with IDing these pickups.
Both humbuckers have no indentifying stamps or markings of any kind the only way I can see to ID is by the wires they have 3 wires a red white and bare wire one of them has a small red stripe on the white wire. Any ideas? I don't think they are the originals it looks like everything has been changed around. They sound ok so I am going to keep them in at least for now just kinda wondered what they might be

Re: Pickup ID question

That doesn't really help, they are probably the stock humbuckers. What model guitar is your RG?

Re: Pickup ID question

It's an RG 550 from 1987. Whoever had it before changed a bucnh of stuff so who knows I get the feeling they aren't original. It really doesn't matter since it actually sounds ok, just thought it might spark somebodys memory or something with the wire colors

Re: Pickup ID question

If they are completely unmarked and have red, white and bare wires you've most likely got the original V2 and V1 humbuckers in the guitar. They were unmarked on the early examples .
