    That's double the rated 8.0k ohms from Lollar's website. I am taking from the 1/4" jack on a 10 ft cable and it's the same at the solder points on the pickup.

    What is wrong?

    Thanks.

    Did you max the volume(s)?

    Good suggestion. But I'm taking measurements straight from the pickup solder points.

    Is it a Lollar?
    Maybe he wound you a 16K pickup.
