Am I right in thinking that pickups are rated in ohms. And so the greater the resistance measured, the hotter the pickup? Could anyone tell me where i'd measure across to try and guage my current pickups? They're the old stock Jackson Duncan Designed ones so theres not a lot of info around about them.

You need a multimeter and take the red lead and touch it to the hot wire from the pick up and the black lead to the ground wire from the pick up.

Cool my time machine worked.
I went back in time and answered your question before you asked it.
I will start the bidding on the machine at ( holds pinky up to mouth) $100,000,000.00

not really.

The output is measured in millivolts, and will vary depending on how close the strings are, how hard you hit them etc. The resistance affects the output but it doesn't specifically indicate what it is.
