    That's probably a tapped single coil not a stacked single coil because all of the windings are in the same direction and the two sections aren't divided.

    test the white and black, i'd imagine in the 6K range somewhere.
    The red should be lower with the ground tap .

    On my SSL-6T the black / red is the tap.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.
