P90 diagnostic and authentication

Recommended Posts

I’ve got a 1967 ES-125TDC. Two problems:


1. The neck pickup has a newer and brassier finish. Still looks older and no markings anywhere by a manufacturer. Reads 8.1 ohms.


2. The bridge pickup is a more corroded aluminium looking base. Took a lot of torque to get the base plate off. No markings either. Reads 4.0 ohms.


What could be happening here? How can I both authenticate these p90s and what could be wrong with the 4.0 ohm reading pickup?
