I was just going through the herd this morning, measuring the pickup resistance of my guitars. I decide to pick up my daughter's Bullet Strat and measured them, and they are each in the 3.5 range.<br /> <br /> So is the upshot that if you like REALLY underwound Strat pickups, you should get a set of Squire Bullets?<br /> <br /> FWIW my Fralins on my own Strat came out N-7.67 M-7.5 B-7.9

DC Resistance does not tell the whole story as the pickup consists of Inductive, Capacitive and resistive reactance. For instance I have a set of Aguilar dual coil Jazz bass pickups with similar output of many 7-8k ohm pickups.<br /> I also would like to know why you are doing this?

Also would need to measure multiple ones.<br /> <br /> Lower-end guitars aren't known for their "one to another" similarity, even in this day and age of modern QC and components.
