Pro P90s in Worn Casino vs P90 Pros

I just ordered one of these from zZounds and was wondering if the pickups are gonna be good enough to keep. I emailed Epiphone and asked them what the difference was in the two pickups. According to them they are the same pickups. I don’t know the reason for the name difference. They didn’t say. Just that they are Alnico 5 and have an output of about 7. So my question is does anyone have these pickups in a Worn Casino and do you like them? I was thinking of putting a set of Lollar’s in it. I still might, even if they are good I doubt they’re as good as the Lollars would be.

The P90s in the standard are - or were, unless they changed them - around 11-12K. 7k is a good vintage wind, and there’s a good chance they will be just fine. The  ones in my 2017 were too muddy and hot for my taste and I replaced them with a vintage wound pair.

Thanks for the reply. I got the guitar today and it’s great. Neck is good and was set up good out of the box except for the action. I don’t know who sets up Epiphone’s at the factory but every one I get the action is super high. The pickups sound great. The neck pickup especially. It gets a great jazzy sound. I’m a big Grant Green fan so thats the sound I’m trying for. I know a Casino isn’t as good as a Gibson ES-330 but it’s close enough for me.  The guitar itself is flawless, the finish is super cool and looks much better in  person. Even the Indian Laurel fretboard looks great. Nice and dark. I’m very happy with the guitar.
