I wouldn't trade my '78/EVH pickup for anything!!!
Yeah it is... but then again I bought 2 tony iommi humbuckers.
It's not just Chip who claimed the pickup read "0". EBMM said the same thing, although they wound up going in a different direction with their pickups.
I guess wow is all I can say. I have a '78 MJ made for me and I am satisfied with the service, sound, and the company.
Who cares, it is not like an EVH tone is hard to get anyway. Any of of his tones are somewhat simple to copy.
I wish we could close this..
Wow, this thread never got nuked? Surprises the HELL out of me.

As a guy with lots of electrical engineering background, I can assure you that if they read 0 ohms when taking the DC resistance :
a) there was a manipulation error
b) they measured while the pickup was still in the guitar and the volume knob was fully off
c) the pickup actually has a short inside somewhere or there is a short at the jack or somewhere else in the signal path
Motorcity Pickups are a ripoff! They used to steal the pictures from Bare knuckle pickups and use them on their own websites. They're product discriptions are also very similar to the pickup discriptions on bareknucklepickups.co.uk
thanks for using my clips,lol...i just heard about it over at a different forum.im not EVH just a hobbiest who enjoys his tone.the motorcity copy of the fender EVH frankenstrat pickup is awsome.i love the pickup,its my favorite.i also have the official EVH version coming as well.just ordered it from musicians friend.you guys will be amazed with the pickup when you try the new EVH released frankenstrat pickup,it nails his early tone.
Can we close this before the Motor City propoganda nonsense starts up again?
