Re: Wait a second
"This in-circuit resonant frequency is the one we actually hear. We can't hear a pickup that isn't plugged into anything so we never hear that 10kHz resonant frequency."
Assuming it's a passive system of course. I would think a buffer amp would present the pickup minimal impedance loading, which is why buffered pickups have much more highs and lows, and a noticeably higher resonant frequency (which of course goes with the extended highs, since the resonant peak is right before the highend roll off begins).  
But I'm agreeing with you.
