I've asked some questions about this before but I didn't phrase them right, so I went away with a zero understanding. I'm totally not getting it. So let me start completely over. What is a dummy pickup? Is it a pickup with no magnets? I understand what they're used for sometimes, to keep the humbucker effect going on when soloing a single coil pickup (which is something that appeals to me, I use just the neck pickup about 50% of the time, the other 50% I have neck and bridge at full volumes). But how is it wired and what exactly is it? Is it a regular pickup that's been wired in to the bass electronics in some clever way? Or is it a specially prepared pickup, like one with no magnets or something? Does it really make no sound at all? And how is it wired in? Thanks for suffering through my ignorance I most surely appreciate the help. Fluxiod.
