    Hi does anyone know what type of Ibanez pickups these are. I need a model name and specs if possible. One of the humbucker wires shown in the enclosed photo has two wires total. They are both similiar resistance about 8.3k ohms for Neck and 8.5k for Bridge.

    It would be easier if you pulled one, and looked on the bottom for any markings. There might not be anything, but there is a chance. They might not be original, either. If you didn't buy the guitar new, they might be replacement pickups.

    This was my first guitar. It had a set of those pickups. I tried looking up the pickups but couldn't find any info. It was a 1986 proline

    can't be sure but if that was a cheaper line of Ibanez back then they were probably EMG selects.

    See if ithe bridge coilsplit but only 3 wires. If so bingo.

    It was my first guitar...I played it through a really bad crate amp and gorilla amp about 30 yrs ago. The neck broke and it's still sitting in my closet. What I remember of the sound is that it had really good humbucking tones...My friend had a strat and the single coils sounded pretty good compared to his...bear I mind this was 30 yrs ago.

    That is an Ibanez guitar model number

    This is the pickup model but I don't see any information on it.
    That tells you it's 2004 or later.

    So basically these pickups are 30 years old or so?

    The pickups can't be 30 years old. ROHS indicates the Reduction of Hazardous Substances directive, which started in 2003.
