STRENGTH SELECTING  

1. Base your selection on your pickups brand, model specifications, type of alnico rod magnets used and DC resistance in KΩ.
2. You can also measure the DC resistance of the pickups yourself (using a digital multimeter at 20 KΩ range or automatic) in the following way:
= Plug in a standard guitar cable into the guitar output jack
= Put Volume Tone pots at their Max position
= Go to position 1 – Bridge pickup only
= Measure the DC resistance between Sleeve and Tip at the other side of the guitar cable jack
= Do the same for the other pickups and record your readings

You can then select the correct PGNCS S strength
VNT – Strength 8 – for Alnico polepiece pickups 5-6.5 KΩ resistance
STD – Strength 10 – for Alnico polepiece pickups 6-8 KΩ resistance
POW – Strength 15 – for Alnico polepiece pickups 9-13 KΩ resistance/Steel screw poles pickups (NOT P90!) 7-9 KΩ resistance
