Jim CRe: Washburn PUP maker?
My Washburn is a Maverick series BT3. It is a shorter scale (Like Gibson) but the 3 single coil pickups are laid out exactally like a Strat. The Volume, tone knobs and 5-way switch look exactally like a Strat. In fact I replaced the switch with one for a Strat because the Washburn switch had been damaged. I did some measuring and the pickups are physically the same size, so they would be a direct fit. I measured the resistance of both the Strat and the Washburn and this is what I got:  
Strat: Neck=6.86k Mid=6.66k Bridge=6.8k  
Washburn:Neck=5.26k Mid=5.35k Bridge=5.47k  
Both are strung with the same Fender Bullit 10's, but there is a HUGE difference in the tone between them!
