Kent Armstrong UK Pickups:
Alnico magnets / D.C. resistance = 8.3K for bridge pickup and 8.1K for neck pickup – Following shortly after the introduction of the hum-cancelling split-P pickup, the now classic Jazz pickups have a characteristic single coil tone which has an added bonus: since they are wound and magnetized opposite from each other, they cancel hum when used together at the same volume! Many players are unaware of this added bonus.
