I have no idea how you get readings at twice the expected value.
Unless there is another resistance in the way, as a bad soldering joint. I do not know what kind of resistance a bad connection would add, I never measured one.
If these bridge pick-ups have twice the wire, they should have noticeably more output than the neck. 8K added otherwise to the 500K volume pot, on the other hand, would only slightly decrease the volume level. This could be verified by measuring directly from the pick-up wires. Green and black are the ones to use.
