6666 Xtra Evil Resistance in a Gibson 490 ?
Can anyone tell me what the dc resistance in a Gibson 490 pickup should be?  
Thanks / Evil

If I had one handy I would measure it for you.  
You are probably aware however, that resistance is futile . . .  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

I having trouble identifying two humbuckers!  
They both have dc resistance of about 8K.  
I wonder if they are ´57 reissues or 490s ?

Try contacting Seymour DUncan. He knows his pickups and seems to be a genuinely helpful person.
