I have a 2012 Fender American Std Precision V with a Nordstrand P pup. I am getting a Nordstrand Big Split 5 in a couple of days. (It was shipped a lot sooner than I expected. Yeah!!) I will be installing it in the bridge position. My intention is to set up the controls like on a Fender Tony Franklin Precision bass. In other words volume, tone, and a 3-way switch that selects P/P+J/J. As you can see this configuration offers no blending options. I have found blending on a P/J configuration to be less than ideal. IMO, because of the way the pickups interact, you don't as much variation as expected. Plus I find the switch is better for quick changes between song parts, or the occasional solo. First question: Where should the pickup be located? The 60's jazz position? The 70's position? Something else? Second question: Do the issues I describe for a P/J setup apply to the Big Split? I realize that I am comparing a single coil to a humbucker, so my assumptions may be off balance.
