Super58 pups is a complicated story, search and you got a days read Cool
Anyway, there are a bunch of different super58s, MIJ, MIK and MIC, most of them have alnico magnets, alnico 3 or 5, depending on year and origin, the super58 customs (MIC) had ,says the rumer anyway, ceramic magnets when they came, 2006 and before that year, i´m not conviced of that but....
I have the most of them in different guitars, and the MIJ, vintage or current, is closest to PAF sound if that is what you search for.

Vintage Super80 pups had ceramic magnets, and i think the current have too.

The info that gnappi(or any other user can give) is the ionly info you'll be able to find in regards to DCR. Unfortunately, Ibanez didn't/doesn't keep track of the DCR on any of their pickups.

Out of curiosity, what would be the best way to find and purchase a Super 58 that was made in Japan and be sure that you are getting an actual MIJ version?

Don't they pretty much look identical to other models / other countries from the outside of the pickup?

To be sure that it is MIJ, you can look att the backplate, only MIJ super 58s have super 58 engraved (or embossed, i´m not sure, look in the attached link) ) in to the backplate.
There are MIJ super 58 variations that not have the engravement, but those having, are MIJ for sure.

If you want a brand new MIJ super 58, you have to order it from a Ibanez dealer, they´re expensive and you have to wait for a couple of weeks to get them, but it´s worth it Cool
I did order a pair from my lokal Ibanez dealer and put the neck pup in my as93 and it sounds avesome, a perfect match to an old super 70 that i put in the bridge position.
The neck pup can sound like in this YT vid i recorded years ago.
