  • MIM strat pickup output??

    i just picked up an MIM strat neck pup on my local CL for $10.
    i took off the cover and saw that:
    1. it had been re-potted with wax
    2. this


    i measured the output of the pickup with a DMM and it read 3.55k ohms
    if i were to take a guess, i'd say that while someone was re-potting the pup, he/she unwound the pickup a bit (or a lot).
    I don't actually mind the low output since i bought the pickup to put on my beater acoustic.. but i just wanted to see how much it had been reduced in comparison to a standard MIM pup.
    anyone know what a standard MIM strat neck pup measures??

      Actually, they're a little hotter than that. I think the MIMs usually measure out just under 7k.
      If we heard mortar shells,we'd cuss more in our songs,and cut down on guitar solos.
