    Since I do not like pedal but love power tube OD, I have to crank 5 Watt amp high and the pups get noisy. Have a set of gen 4 pups coming tomorrow, but noticed DC Resistance on both pups id 10.6. Really want them, but that seems strange. Should I be concerned or is it cool.

    It's a stacked HB that's designed to sound like a single coil, so you can't compare that to a SC wound to 10k

    I think it’ll be fine. I have a Gen4 Tele bridge pickup in a Tele Custom partscaster. I like it. Ballsy with gain and articulate clean.

    It is perfectly acceptable to have a hum cancelling pickup that sounds really amazing and maybe unique and nothing at all like a '51 Tele.
    Nothing wrong with sounding like a '51, either.
