Gibson pickup troubleshooting

Post by Rob1978 » April 2nd, 2019, 12:50 pm

Hi everyone! I have a '78 Gibson LP Custom. It has its original pickups, but for some reason the bridge pup sounds thin and measures 1.1 kohms (the neck pup is perfect, 7.44 kohms). The pots have changed about a year ago, but the pickup functioned the same before that. Don"t know if it's a problem or not, but the measured impedance grows, and doubles while turning down the volume pot (same for both). Is something wrong with the wiring or the pickup needs a rewound?
