My newer Classic has Burstbucker 61r and 61t pickups. Am I correct in assuming these are NOT the same as Burstbucker Pros?

Burstbucker Pros are AlNiCo V magnets.
Not up on 61’s

Yes, the 61r/t are not the same as burstbucker pros. They both use alnico V magnets but I believe they differ in the windings.

There was an informative thread I found discussing it here. So I’m basing what I know on this.

No they’re not, I read somewhere they have different winds to each other
