Hi all - I have a Fender 51 Custom Shop Nocaster neck pickup, which I like very much. I recently took it out of a partscaster and measured it before packing it away. When I measure at the ends of the leads, I get a DCR starting off at about 11k and climbing all the way up to about 13.7k. The multimeter just keeps roaming. When I measure at the eyelets, I get a reading that is very close to the Fender spec sheet: about 7.2k. What does this mean? At some point, I tried to de-solder the ground strap running from one of the eyelets to the ground tab on the cover, so as to remove it completely. I wonder if somehow I messed something up when I was yanking on that thing, trying to get it out. I ended up just cutting it off, but I have thought that perhaps I damaged the coil wire to that eyelet or something else. But if I understand correctly, if the coil wire were broken anywhere, I would get a reading of "0." Anybody have any ideas? Can the leads lie, while the eyelets tell the truth?
