Hi guys.

I have an original set of Wolfgang pickups but one of them doesnt work and needs a rewind. Prob is I've only found one and am not sure if its bung or working. How can I test this?

Cheers

Hold the wires against a guitar cable and tap it to see if any signal comes through.

The cable should be connected to an amp, obviously ;-)

Just hold all of them against the ring?

you could wire the PU to a jack and hold it over the strings connected to an amp

I've seen them checked while in a pickguard (strat) but off the guitar. Using a tuning fork - dong it so it rings and hold it near the magnets, you'll hear the same sound amplified if the assembly is plugged into an amp.
No good if have no fork, improvise.
Have you thought to check with ohmeter?

Can't get simpler than molly's idea. It would never have thought to do that

Molly's idea works but tap it on the front face or magnet with something made of steel like a small screwdriver or a 10c coin.
