Gibson 490 T bridge pickup?

Hey. I bought a used Gibson 490 T pickup. Its ohm reading is about 7 k, although it should be more than 8 k depending on the species. Is there any information on whether they have been selected with a lower power. The pole distance is 52 mm, the magnet is 60 mm long, alnico, dark on top, bright colored sides. The sound is quite thin and clear.20240506_171313.jpg20240506_170828.jpg20240506_170754.jpg20240506_171518.jpg20240506_170746.jpg
