Hi. Does anybody know what pickups are in the artist v guitar.
They're called Artist V pickups (that's also what they say on their covers).
I was told they're in the vein of the 57/08 and 59/09s, etc., when I got mine. They're wonderful pickups. Very articulate, a bit on the brighter side, and I'd describe them as medium-output. The coil tap/blend positions sound very, very good.
They clean up nicely with the volume control, and have a lot of clarity. Hope that helps!
