have done a few now.
seems like a given pickup always reads 0.2k to 0.4k lower in DCR after "resting" 24-48 hrs, compared to measurements made immediately after I completed it. Same meter.
Is this normal ?
Something to do with wire stretch or compression ?
Just curious about the physics of it all.

Yes - completely normal. To a small degree, resistance in wire is directly proportional to temperature - scaled out to miles of wire on a bobbin - we can actually measure that.

Does that mean that spilling beer into 'yer Tele will be the secret to great tone? YMMV... depending on your skin depth :)
