In case anyone was wondering...had the trusty multi-meter out tonight...

85/15 (CE24) = 7.83Ω / 8.64Ω
58/15 (McCarty) = 7.83Ω / 8.64Ω (not a typo; exactly the same measurements)
58/15 LT (Mc594) = 7.65Ω / 7.69Ω

Actually both... how much of a difference is 0.18 on the neck? I get the difference of .95 on the neck is a pretty significant. IDK...Maybe it's my non-electrically savvy mind...I'm just a dentist with a PRS addiction...what do I know about electricity?:confused:

If I'm thinking correctly. 85/15 and 58/15 have the some winding (number of turns and wire gauge). Therefore, the resistance measured will be the same between them. The difference in sound is a result of one being covered (58/15) and the other being un-covered (85/15). I'm impressed that the resistance measurement between the two was so spot on. This reflect the quality control of PRS.

Yeah but pickups of exactly the same type and specs rarely measure out EXACTLY the same. There's almost always variance.

58/15 = 7.85 / 8.68 (McCarty)
58/15 = 7.79 / 8.65 (P245)

During one of the clinics at Experience, Paul said that the bridge and neck pickups in the 594 are identical. Your measurements match that.

And... does anybody know what kind of magnet in it?
I've tried a P245 with 58/15s and they sounded like the best pickups I've ever heard. Much above the acclaimed 57/08 set.
