    Has anyone ever measured the stock Angus SG bridge pup? I just received a 2006 Angus and was surprised to find the bridge pup measures a bit less than the neck. IIRC, the Angus Signature pup weighed in at around 11-13Kohms? I checked the wiring and it appears absolutely factory.

    Anyone have a stock one they can measure?

    I don't have any metering gear, but that's not the first time I've hear that the AY bridge pup is slightly low in output. From what I understand, that's partly why they sound so good (in an AY kinda way). Modern humbuckers are generally higher in output, but at the expense of clarity.

    Enjoy.

    I have nothing to add here, other than the fact that I initially thought it said ANUS SG Bridge pickup, to which I was INCREDIBLY confused.

    Continue on...

    I adjusted the pups for equal relative output. Gotta admit, this axe does ring out nicely.

    According to Gibson, the AY Humbucker is a high output pickup, outdone only by the Dirty Fingers.

    yeah, but its dc resistance is only in the low to mid 9ks. i liken it to a 57 classic plus with an alnico V magnet jammed in there, a pretty good sounding combo, actually.

    oh, and the tony iommi, the 496r and the 500t are also higher output than the angus.
