    Does anyone know of a good reference site for finding pick up output values? I hate having to go to multiple sites to compare pickups. Also is there a good way to measure the output at my guitar?

    I grow organic carrots and they are not for sale
    I believe that passive pickups quite often have a higher output than active pickups ... but active pickups in conjunction with an onboard preamp will have more output than the passive pickups do by themselves:bassist:
