    Does anyone know what the correct or general ohmage of a '70's Fender Tele Bass pickup would be? This would be the large "humbucker" looking one. Thanks. wannatele

    The correct term is resistance. IIRC the pickup is configured like a P Bass pickup internally, perhaps it's similar to a P.

    If no one has a number, I believe that Bill Lawerence (sp?)designed the humbuckers for Fender, perhaps an email to him would reveal the answer too...

    Why to you need to know?
