I have a Yamaha BB714. It has a Billy Sheehan-ish humbucker pickup in the neck position and a split P-bass pickup in the middle. The neck pick-up sounds beefy but it gets in the way of slap bass popping. I'd like to remove it, but maybe relocate it to the bridge position. I don't know how that will sound though. I know neck and bridge pickups on a normal electric aren't quite the same, but I don't know what the difference is. Same thing with bass pick-ups, I don't know the difference between a neck and bridge bass humbucker pickup. I don't want to rout out the body for the bridge pick-up just to end up ruining it. 1. Is routing possible with a rotary tool? I don't want to buy a router. I'm not into carpentry. 2. Removal would be the simplest. It has three knobs. One is volume for the neck pickup. One is for the middle pickup, one is a push-pull pot for tone. Do I just unwire the connections to the front pickup and it will be fine? Or do the loose-ended wires have to be tied together to close the loop or must they be kept separated to prevent hum? I don't know.
