mutley Posted March 22, 2007 Report Share Posted March 22, 2007 (edited) Hello folks, I'm Ned from Florida and new to this site. I'm a long time player who has decided to begin some simple steps that will hopefully lead to being a competent tech of sorts. I have a Tele body and have purchased a neck from Warmoth and have several guitars I will be performing basic mods/repairs on soon (I hope). My question de jour is the Multi-meter's use to measure resistance in pickups. I purchased a unit yesterday that very closely resembles one I've seen here from a supplier named Harbor something. I connected the leads (black to common and red to volts/ohms) and set the dial to the 2K DC setting. Now, I apologize for such a basic question in advance and have pretty thick skin so flame me if you must, but some post flame advice would be great. What is the next step to measure the resistance? I tried on a guitar with 2 P90s and touched the Red to one of the screws under the guitar string and the other end to the bridge, but would get readings that only popped up for a second and would go back to zero very quickly. I'm sure it's a user problem. After that I'm not too sure of anything. Any help would be appreciated, I'm still at the 2+2=4 stage (at least I hope I can get there quickly). I can build a house so I'm hoping I can learn some skills necessary for what I eventually would like to do.
