So I bought a Burny SG off eBay. It says it's from the 1990s and has VH-1s. I took out the pickups because I already had some planned for it. Now I need a set of humbuckers for a semi-hollow-body. I'm looking at these "VH-1s" and there is no marking whatsoever. How do I know they're VH-1s? Are they good pickups? I'd try them out but since I'm having surgery on a semi-hollow-body to get them in I'd like to try and find out more about them. Thanks.

There were 2 versions of the VH-1. Early 80s VH-1s had vintage style braided wire. 2nd generation had plastic coated hookup wire. Totally different pickups. I’ve never heard 1st gen VH-1s, but have owned a few different Burnys with 2nd gen VH-1 and VH4s. Didn’t like any of the stock Burny pickups. All of them sounded thin and not very complex.
