>> Resonant peak?  
Seymour Duncan quotes resonant peak frequency values for their guitar pickups, which has an effect on its tone. (Just like a speaker will have a resonant peak which will effect its tone.) I could build a cheap signal generator and send something like a 250mV signal into a guitar pickup using the circuitry you describe to plot out its frequency response and to determine its resonant peak (which I believe is the frequency that the pickup will produce its highest output).
