    Just for giggles, opened up the control panel on my VM jazz and ohm tested the pups:

    Neck: 8.4k
    Bridge 8.0k

    just as a Jazz bass should be. That is all :p
     
  2. DC resistance does not mean anything.

    FWIW, however, the bridge pickup is typically more resistive than the neck, because it has more wire on it.

    Was more of a info tidbit for those wondering what those pups are

    That's what I see also. 5.1K for the neck, 5.2K for the bridge.That is in circuit,
    with 120K of combined volume pot resistance in parallel. Also that is a MIM
    J bass.

    Different magnet type pickups will typically have different number of turns, and
    a different DC resistance. Stronger magnets, less turns.
