ive looked all over and they just state that its humbuckers. I cant find what type, brand, where their made anything. i think theyre supposed to be better than the ones in the Epi standard but without knowing which ones they are its hard to tell. i havent got a chance to go to a store and try them both out yet.

they're the same ones as the epi standard. they would have made a big deal about it if they were any different. Do what i did, and replace those stock epi humbuckers with real Gibson pickups. it makes a world of difference.

alnico classic humbuckers
Ibanez RG321MH (Air Classic/Tone Zone)
Fernandes Telecaster (Twang King/stock bridge pickup)

They're generic Epi pickups that are based off of the design of the Gibson Classic '57 pickups, but they have Alnico V magnets instead of Alnico II magnets so they've got a bit more output than the Gibson ones have (and they're also a touch 'brighter' tone-wise, though also muddier, strangely). All of the Standard and higher Epi models have them (except for the Elitists, and of course odd models like signature models or the goldtop which has P-90s).

This man speaks the truth. Stock Epi pickups are all bass and treble. No midrange whatsoever.
