I ended up getting a dual pickup version of the new MMs (worn white) and it sounds great. It sounds really good. Has a great neck by the way.
Anyways, I measured the DC values of the pickups without opening the pickguard (just measured it with a guitar cable). So as far as I can tell my bridge is like 5.50K and neck is like 5.00K.
But these suckers sound very loud, much louder than my 8.00K OC duff tele lead, and 6.50K surfer neck.
Was wondering about how they were constructed. Are these magnet rods, or is there are magnet bar underneath the bobin? These resistance figures are pretty low, but maybe they are wound with thicker wire than #42. Dunno.
What I know is that they sound very clear but have a lot of output.
Would appreciate the feedback.
