I am trying to calculate/meter the total load I am showing the pickups, but I'm a bit confused. I have a few mods in there to alter the sound of the pickup. The pot is 500k and wired with hot lead to lug 1, lug 2 is output and lug 3 is bent back and soldered to the base. I have 333k resistor and 1000pF cap between lug 1 and lug 2. I also have a 1M resistor between lug 1 and lug 3. I am trying to find out what the total resistive load is that the pickup is seeing. To sum up. Start with 500k resistance, add 333k, counter with 1M in parallel. I'd assume it to be somewhere between 333k and 500k, more specifically 454.45k, but my meter is showing a steady 5.11k between lug 1 and lug 3. I have tried reading from lug 2 to lug 3 as well, same results. I've also tried metering the pickup hot to the pickup cold wire, still the same. These readings are nowhere near what I would expect to see. Need a second opinion on what is going on here thanks.
