Re: QM1 & QM2 stock pickups - DiMarzio equivalent?
This is all very interesting, and definately deserves my first post as a new member.
I came across this website after a search on these pickups in google. Surprisingly its really hard to find out any info on them as such.
The reason I am trying to learn about them is I too love them. I just purchased not long ago an "Ibanez S1625FBNT", atleast thats what is written on the price tag. I've yet to find anything on the internet about it though. the search comes up with no results.
After doing some digging around, the guitar which looks most like what I have, is actually the S1625FB. Which is likely the same guitar, however I don't know where the NT in my price tag comes from.
You would think that with prestige guitars there would be a wealth of information out there. So basically my guitar has the QM1 and QM2 pickups that are being discussed in this topic. When I purchased the guitar I was on the understanding that the pickups in it were DiMarzio's, and after having a close look and not seeing anything DiMarzio I was a bit confused.
None the less, even with these pickups the guitar is still an awesome guitar, and it still screems with all the warmth I desire.
So if you guys do ever manage to dig up some solid information on these pickups I'd love to learn more about them. And likewise if I find anything I'll be sure to post in here.
