This pickup is the thin, single coil pickup that Guild used primarily in the mid to late sixties. "Mickey Mouse" is an in-house nickname and never appeared in Guild literature. I've had a couple of guitars with these pickups slip through my fingers over the years, and I would like to get some numbers on these little rodents.

It would be invaluable if you could measure the resistance of the pickup by turning up the controls on your guitar, plugging in a cable, and measuring the resistance between the tip and the ring of the plug. This is an imperfect specification, as there are a lot of variables that go into making a pickup, but it's a start!
Thanks!
