    The Classic 57 pair are A2 magnets according to the Gibson site. Gibson's store. This chart incorrectly says they are A5.

    Good catch! It's too late for me to edit it, maybe @Paruwi could fix it?

    What are the Dc Resistance values on the 2015 Epi Alnico Classic Pro, Alnico 5 , Neck & Bridge values- supposed to be based on the Gibson Classic57's ? Thanks

    I know I'm late to the party, but I'd anyway like to respond for the good of the Epi collective:
    Epiphone Alnico Pro neck: 7.68K
    Epiphone Alnico Pro bridge: 8.40K - These p'ups are Alnico 2.

    No, not really. However, I think they sound better than the '57 Classics. They're clearer, specially in the neck position.

    Since this is an informational thread, and we're already listing Dimarzio and GFS in a "Gibby" pickup thread...let's really jump the tracks and post values of stuff we have.

    I guess I'll start with what I have in my G400:

    Carvin S22J {neck}: (11 pole pieces per coil, Alnico 5 magnet, metal cover) 7.6K Ω

    Carvin S22B {bridge}: (11 pole pieces per coil, Alnico 5 magnet, metal cover) 13.3K Ω

    In my partscaster I have:

    Carvin AP11 / AP11R: (11 pole pieces, Ceramic magnet) 4.3K - 4.4K Ω

    Prior to the AP11's I had:

    Dragonfire Crusader Single coils (Big hex bolt pole pieces, dual ceramic "refrigerator" magnet sticks) ≈5.6K Ω
