My beloved Stingray recently went under the knife and I'm loving the results. I've never been a huge fan of the stock preamp so I found an oem 2 band. I liked it, didn't love it. So I took it all out and put in standard jazz wiring. Front coil volume, rear coil volume, and tone. With all knobs full on it sounds like.....a Stingray! Solo the neck coil and it sounds fuller, deeper. Turn down the tone slightly and it approaches a P tone. Solo the rear coil and it adds some high mids and loses some bass, great for that twangy Skynard tone. The volume is only slightly less than it was with the preamp and the single coil hum when you solo a coil is no worse than any of my jazzes. I'll try to get some sound clips up soon.
