Ibanez has produced two seemingly unrelated pickups called the V2 (or V-2, Vintage 2, or Vintage II). The first of these was introduced in 1978 and used for a few years in various Artist, Destroyer and Roadstar models.

The V7, S1 and V8 on the EGEN8 Enlarge sprite.png

The Vintage/ Single pickups (V & S) are a line of magnetic pickups for solid body electric guitars that used in some Ibanez guitar models starting from the late 1970s.

List of pickups

Six string "V" pickups

V1

Vintage 1 / V1
Brand: Ibanez
Model no.: IBZ V1
Part no.: YE112[1]
Construction: Humbucking
Position: Neck
Magnet: Alnico 5
DC resistance: 10.8KΩ
Used in: full list
Description: Neck humbucker usually paired with V2 in bridge. Slightly overwound for beefy, traditional rhythm sound.


V2

Ibanez has produced two seemingly unrelated pickups called the V2 (or V-2, Vintage 2, or Vintage II). The first of these was introduced in 1978 and used for a few years in various Artist, Destroyer and Roadstar models.

The second V2 was a neck pickup which was paired with the V1 in some of the early RG models.

V2 / V-2 / Vintage II FIRST version
Brand: Ibanez
Part no.: 3113CR (cream)/ 3113BK (black)
Year introduced: 1978
Discontinued: 1987
Construction: Humbucker
Position: Bridge/ neck
Wiring: 3 conductor
Used in: DT555, RS400
Ibanez V2 humbucker.jpg
Description: Hot, high-output humbucker.[2] Delivers a combination of high output and solid upper midrange response.[3] If hot is the way you like it, you're sure to like the V-2. The V-2 has extremely high output with reinforced upper midrange response. The V-2 is designed to be played wide open.[4] It was developed for Paul Stanley's PS10 and was said to mimic DiMarzio's Super Distortion.

This first version of the V2 was discontinued after 1987, which is the same year the second version was introduced. It's unclear if the two pickups share a similar design or specifications.
Vintage 2 / V2 SECOND version
Brand: Ibanez
Model no.: IBZ V2
Part no.: YE114BK[1] (1990), 3PU1J1V2B2 (2003–2004), 3PU1J1V2B6 (2003–2004), 3PU00A0014 (2013)
Year introduced: 1987
Discontinued: 2013
Construction: Humbucking
Position: Bridge
Magnet: Alnico 5
DC resistance: 15.5KΩ
Used in: full list
Description: Bridge humbucker usually paired with V1 in neck. Even toned with tight leads. Smooth top-end and added sustain.

This second V2 pickup was offered on a variety of models from 1987 through 2004. It reappeared briefly in 2007–2008 and again in 2013 on reissues of the original RG550. It hasn't been used since 2013.

V3

Vintage 3
Brand: Ibanez
Model no.: IBZ V3
Part no.: YE114[1]
Construction: Humbucking
Position: Neck
Magnet: Alnico 5
Used in: full list
Description: Neck humbucker usually paired with V4 in bridge.


V4

Vintage 4
Brand: Ibanez
Model no.: V4
Part no.: YE115[1]
Year introduced: 1990
Discontinued: 1992
Construction: Humbucking
Position: Bridge
Magnet: Alnico 5
Used in: full list
Description: Bridge humbucker usually paired with V3 in neck.

V5

V5
Brand: Ibanez
Model no.: V5
Part no.: YE107[5][1]
Construction: Humbucker
Position: Bridge/ neck
DC resistance: 16.5 KΩ
Resonant frequency: 5.25 kHz
Wiring: 4 conductor
Used in: RS440, DT250, DT350, others
V5 humbucker.png
Description: Delivers powerful mid-range punch.[5] Arched bladed bar (58mm x 5mm) balances each string and eliminate volume deterioration caused by string bending. Powerful magnetic field enables marvelous sustain and high output. Wax potting results in a smooth and warm distortion.[6]

The V7 is a single-coil pickup with a similar design.


V6

Vintage 6
Brand: Ibanez
Model no.: IBZ V6
Year introduced: 1992
Construction: Humbucking
Position: Bridge
Output: Medium output
Used in: full list
Description: Designed to work with S2 and S3 in SSH configuration. Even toned, bright, cutting lead humbucker. Medium output with complete clarity


V6F

V6F
Model no.: V6F
Construction: Humbucker
Position: Neck/ Bridge
Used in: RG1421F, others
Description:


V7 (single coil)

V7
Brand: Ibanez
Model no.: YE155[5]
Construction: Single coil pickup
Position: Any
DC resistance: 3.91 KΩ
Resonant frequency: 6.15 kHz
Wiring: 2 conductor
Used in: RS430, full list
V7 single coil.png
Description: Delivers powerful, bright tone. 42 gauge wire.[5] Arched bladed bar (58mm x 5mm) balances each string and eliminate volume deterioration caused by string bending. Offers great lows and brilliant highs. Single-coil version of the V5 pickup.[7]

The V7T has identical internals as the V7 with a molded in-body direct mounting cover.[8]

This pickup is not related to the similarly named V7 humbucker.


V7T (single coil)

V7T
Brand: Ibanez
Construction: Single coil pickup
Position: Any
DC resistance: 3.91 KΩ
Resonant frequency: 6.15 kHz
Wiring: 2 conductor
Used in: RS230, RS240, others
V7T single-coil pickup.png
Description: The V7T has identical internals and specs as the V7, but with a special molded cover to allow for direct in-body mounting rather than mounting to a pickguard or pickup ring.[9]

This pickup is not related to the similarly named V7 humbucker.


V7 (humbucker)

Vintage 7
