    the higher the reading the more "dirtier" the pickup sounds plus by checking the ohms you can tell if the pup is good as in working order. No ohm reading is a sign the pup is history !

    Six, just stick a cord in, turn the controls up all the way, set the meter to ohms, touch one lead to the top and one lead to the shield and read the meter! Once for bridge once for neck.....not the best way but it gives an idea of whats going on........

    mmmmmm... you're making me think Vox. Let me see what I can do. I have a volt/ ohm meter, but it's not digital... Let me try it....

    Just as a pre-thought, what am looking for to be "good, bad, so-so"....?
