Does anybody know the site with information (Dc resistance, output etc) about this pickups? Ibanez doesn't produce guitars with QM pickups (they were replaced in high-end models with Ibanez/DiMarzio designed) so I cannot find any information via ibanez.com.

Well i cant really get the actual output, this is the least that i could find about those QM (Quantum) pickups which is direct from the catalog.

QM1 Neck - Ceramic, medium output with full clarity
QM2 Bridge - Ceramic, higher output and enhanced harmonics for tight, even tone with slightly less high end
QMS1 Middle - Alnico 5, even string output, complements the QM1 and QM2.

Ok, and what about tone similarities - are they more like PAF, Evos or what? And - how much $$$ I can get for QM1 and QM2?

The Quantum pickups are no longer in production, you gotta get 'em frm eBay/pwnshop. Tone similarities, they cant be the same as DiMarzio's, these are stock Ibanez pickups which werent manufactured by DiMarzio. Most probably, but nowhere near the OEM Dimarzio, the QM1 would sound like Evolution Neck, and the QM2 would sound like X2N/D-Sonic.

Over the years, Ibanez pickups werent the best pickups for a stock pickup but they do get the job done. 90% of the time mostly it gets changed to a real DiMarzio.
