    Just bought a set off ebay. Supposed to be a calibrated set. However, both pickups measure 7.75k on my fluke meter. Seems to me I remember the neck being 7.5k and the bridge 7.9k on the classic 57 pickups. Anyone know for sure?

    I've never seen a calibrated set of 57 Classics. Gibson just offers the 57 Classic without any neck or bridge designation. Are you perhaps referring to the 57 Classic and the 57 Classic Plus? I've had about 6 of those pickups at different times. All the 57 Classics were right around 8K. Usually a little under. All the 57 Classic +'s were over 8K. Lowest I had was 8.4 highest was 9.2.

    thanks. I guess 7.75k is within spec.
