Boyz...if it's stamped MMK45 on the bottom then it's an MMK45! Doesn't matter which guitar it's in.
Bowenjaybee is correct.

My Thunder I-A reads:
NECK: 10.92 K (5.66 K split)
BRIDGE: 11.04 K (5.57 K split)
COMBINED: 5.60 K (2.84 K split)
Oh yeah, she wails! And that's without the active boost! Twisted Evil

Mine are nominal 11K (the decimals make no real difference, round 'em off).
That's very good, but some 45's will test out even higher, in the 14K range.
Hey, this is what puts the "thunder" in the Thunder! What a Face

How's the wiring going? have you had a look at the Thunder I wiring diagram on the resurrected Westone.Info site? it is a slightly different to the Thunder 1-T diagram that I sent you, it's the one you need.
