Many years ago I was given an old Japanese Aria Diamond ES335 style guitar that a friend found under a house. It wasn't in good shape, non-original neck with unplayable action, electronics didn't work at all, etc etc. but it looked cool so it's been hanging on my wall for a decade or so. Anyway, it's got 3 cool looking pickups, kind of like P90 shaped humbuckers with one row of screw poles and one row of staple poles. I've recently started to teach myself to tinker with guitar electronics and am about to start a project using various bits I have lying around. So I was wondering if anyone could shed any light on these pickups as I have never actually heard them. The neck and the bridge read about 4.8k impedance which seems very low for a humbucker. The middle pickup seems to be broken as I get a very high reading that continues to rise. I popped the cover off it and it appears that there are indeed 2 coils and the wire from both coils is connected to the positive terminal. Would this mean that the coils are in parallel rather than series? Does anyone know any more about these style of pickups or if they are worth using? I am going to have to rout for them before I try them so I was hoping to find out a little more about them before I make a decision. I am putting together a Fender Bass VI inspired bass using a Teisco Mosrite short scale bass body and a mustang bridge and I thought these pickups would be period correct and look the part. Many thanks for reading and for any insights or advice!
