The pickups in the JTV 69 are a custom design that James Tyler designed specifically for Variax Guitars.

Though exact specs are not released I can tell you that the humbucker has very similar specs to the Studebaker:

With the Single Coils being based off of the S Style:

Does that mean the single coil pickups are AlNiCo 2 magnets then?

I certainly like the sound of them and have been thinking of getting some AlNiCo 2 for another guitar.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
