Quantum Pickup in RG?

Okay, a friend of mine had this guitar branded "Quantum". Never heard of them before but the one review on the one item I could find made by them (an Amp) was beyond good. It has a single Hum configuration like an EVH frankenstrat. I took the pickup out (resembles a covered EMG but is passive) and measured the output and it came to 21.5k! I wired it up in my RG and Wow! Great sound! It's got excellent mid-range scoop, not at all muddy like the INF series I had before and very articulate, I paid 10 dollars for the donor guitar (keep in mind this thing has drywall looking screws holding the 2-point bridge in) It really is a piece, but I couldn't be more happy with the pickup. Anyone ever heard of this brand at all? Seems VERY obscure.

They are stock Ibanez pickups.
They can be found on some IC and DT models.

Re: Quantum Pickup in RG?

No these are NOT Ibanez pickups. I should have clarified that this is the BRAND quantum. I know that there are pickups called quantums that were in a variety of early 90's S series and other models, but this is a covered (think EMG) style pickup that was in a QUANTUM guitar....I took it out of the guitar myself and it is a stock pickup from the guitar. The Ibanez pickups say QTM and are open coil style, this is from a different brand all-together.
