Hello All, I finally signed up here and like to get straight to the question I have. I started changing pickups on my J-Bass. As I was taking readings on all my other Basses, I noticed that, unlike readings on guitar pups, the DC resistance seems to read pretty much exactly 1/2 the value of it is supposed to be. Ex: 3.25 Kohms on a low output pup that's supposed to have around 6.5 Kohms. Same on another, reads 4.2 Kohms, while it should be 8.4 Kohms. The meter seems to be doing just fine and guitar pups read exactly as they are supposed to. Is there something I am missing? I can't wrap my brain around this. Now my intro. Playing Bass since around 35 years. I'm not a Pro, but some nice R 'n' B. This Forum helped me many times, when searching for answers on all kinds of topics. I like to thank everybody here, who engages in providing answers to the many questions people have in regards to Bass playing, instruments and other details.
