I think Yerffej (oh yeah...Jeffrey!) is right on the money. These are most likely the same pickups that came stock in my 2000 Epi G400. They certainly aren't the best. They're unpotted too and that makes them basically unusable with any amount of gain. I think they started putting slightly better pickups in their axes in 2002 or 2003. I don't know what's in them now since they moved production to China.Yerffej said:the pickups in that guitar are humbuckers. they arent p-90's, and I would be very,very surprised if they were anything but alnico. they are probably nameless epiphone pickups which come in most of their guitars
P.S. '57 Classics would kick butt in that guitar!
