Bought these pickups a year ago from Aliexpress, I think they are worth a check.

    Hello. So I was measuring the pickups on my guitars and noticed that these ones show a pretty high reading. Now I'm not sure at the moment (haven't done any further reasearch), but personally I really like them for the price.

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32822715557.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.6b0c4c4dcmkeaH
    They're going for 27 USD right now.

    The readings are as such:
    neck pickup: 8.07k ohms
    middle pickup: 10.34k ohms
    bridge pickup: 8.71k ohms

    Note that this purchase also includes the pickguard, 3 pots, a 5way swtich and 2 caps, all wired up and ready to install. I haven't noted down any of the specs on the caps or pots, but the quality on them is solid, with no issues so far (i suspect these are Alpha pots).

    Hope someone finds these useful.

    Edit: Added a recording with neck>middle>bridge order, but the quality is questionable... I just plugged the guitar into the PC and found a freeware recorder.

    I've used these loaded pickguards. They're pretty good. I don't think you can do better for the price.

    Damn nice find! Going to order a pair of black ones soon!

    I've fixed the link also; I couldn't access it any sooner, the mobile page of soundcloud seems to be just an add for the app.

    No worries M8.. nice warm pickups..I have a taste for you on that Lawrence.. Not sure of the model as a previous owner put it in..I will check when I pull the guard on it..You should be able to run on the reverb nation site without out adding a client..
