    hello folks,
    i hope this is in the right forum.

    how do i test the pickups for resistance , (single wire pickups) ?
    i mean which wires do i connect the meter to ?
    do i just put the positive on the hot wire and negative on the shielded wire and check the meter ?
    any help will be greatly appreciated.

    cool, if thats the case i could also test a 4 wire pickup i have using the same method, using the hot wire and earth wire and omit the other 2 wires.
    thanks for that,
    cheers !
