What kind of Dimarzio pickup is this?
Looks like a dual sound or super distortion.
It's got the allen wrench screws on both sides.
I can't read any model markings on the bottom, but a Super Distorsion would be marked DP100. Trouble is, that pickup looks like it's from the '70s, and my Super-2 from the '70s doesn't have a model number on the bottom. I don't think their PAFs did back then either.
It's a 4-conductor cable, so my guess is that it's the Dual Sound version of the Super Distortion. Same pickup, different cable.
All it says is "Dimarzio Pickups" "Made In The U.S.A." on it.. I was thinking Dual Sound too.
If you have a DMM handy, the Super Distortion I have sitting here measures about 14.3K
A Dual Sound would have a real similar reading. Give or take whatever the temperature does to the pickup's reading.
It read 6.50 one way and 6.53 the other..
You measuring both coils in series with each other?
I'm not sure.. I borrowed a meter from a friend and he told me how to measure them. I have it marked as W = 6.53, and the RB = 6.50.
Should I have hooked them together to read the whole thing?
On Dimarzios, connect the black and white wires and you can read the overall resistance using red as hot. Green and bare are the ground.
Hook or twist the black and white wires together and touch one probe to the red (hot) and one probe to green (ground).
