    Hey it's Mat from Gibson Product Development - AMA

    Great thread Mat! How do you like Tim Shaw pickups? Do you know what kind of alnico magnets where in those? I have a ´84 es 335 (black) which have those and they have very low KOhm readings (7.1 something..). Killer pickups though, and guitar. It sounds very Les Paul like on the higher frets. It...

    PAF pu reading?

    The neck PU on my -60 ES 335 sometimes read high when I check it with an multimeter? Can be as high as 13 KOhm and then when I turn the volume down (I check with a cable in to the output jack btw) and up again it reads normal 8.3 KOhm. Is it something wrong with the pot or can it be the PU...
