    Default Thunderbird Bass Pickups?

    I would like some information on the Thunderbird pickups. What are they? Are they single coil or humbuckers? 2 wire or 4, and what is the dc impedance of them? I am working on a project, and they are the right physical size, but I need to know the electrical characteristics of them to make sure they will do what I need.
    Thanks.

    They are humbuckers but I don't own a modern 'bird to measure the DC resistance (which does not necessarily tell the whole truth regarding output). AFAIK they have only two leads and they are quite beefy in output. Hope this helps you.

    Thanks for the reply. I have been unable to find the specs on Tbird pickups. I will keep looking.
