  • Is my Alnico Pro II pickup neck or bridge version?

    I got an used Alnico Pro II pickup. The sticker has been removed. Is there any other way to find out which one I have?

    If you have access to a decent quality meter, you can measure its DC resistance.
    The bridge version should measure around 7.85k ohms.
    The neck version, around 7.6k ohms.

    The problem is, with anything less than a "lab-grade" meter, that degree of variance could be within the meters own accuracy.

    Perhaps, someone else will have a better technique.

      .25? Kinda makes you wonder if there's any real difference at all.

      The answer is always "burn it, dumbass."

          I have a set of the APH's, and there is a definate difference in the tone between the bridge and neck. DC resistance is the best way to tell.
