V1 and V2 magnets

So, I bought a '90 RG570 from the bay, and as expected the pickups weren't so good. I've been hearing about people switching the ceramic and alnico 5 magnets in their V7 and V8 pickups around, something that sounds like quite a good idea to me. I was just wondering if the V1 and V2 also have a ceramic magnet in the neck pup and an A5 in the bridge pup, so that there would be any point in switching them. I've been looking around the internet, but haven't found any answer.

Maybe someone here could enlighten me? =)
