I'm interested in a 44-02 and might buy it second hand. What I hope to achieve with the bass, if i buy it, is a pretty close jazz bass sound(along with many other tones of course). However, the guy said that the humbucker pickup is wired in series which would sound closer to a Music Man than standard wiring, it's done by a luthier. Now, I'm afraid that with this everything is going to sounds drastically different, especially if i want to get a jazz sound and I put on both pickups with the humbucker panned on the back single coil. What do you guys think about this? By the way my english isn't great. I can't try it out and have to decide if i buy it based on information from the internet.
