    I've got 2:
    1. A 1990's Squier P/J Protone. Mods: MM J Neck, new GFS Pups, switchable from Parallel to Series.
    2. Squier Bronco Bass. Mods: Active/Passive switch with my own personally designed single band active preamp (thus the 3 knobs), Grover tuners, Moved the output jack to the body edge (ala tele style), and I made a black pickguard.

    @patrickbrose- series/parallel on a PJ? dont have a schematic for that do you?
    i couldnt figure it out, so i normally just do a pickup selection toggle switch.

    Super Easy, just use a J bass Series/Parallel wiring but instead of the neck J, use the P. I used the SD diagrams.

    i didnt think you could run a split coil and a single coil in a series/parallel circuit.
    hmmm...

    Most P-bass pickups are simply one pickup that is split into two parts. There is still a Hot and Ground. The third wire simply connects the two pickup pieces. You can treat it like any other single coil pickup in a wiring diagram. And the combination of a P and a J in Series is super awesome...massive punch and power. I honestly can't figure out why this is not a standard feature on P/J basses. It can be done with one extra part (dpdt switch), which must cost only $.50 for a company like Fender.

    I used a toggle (you can see it between the bridge volume and tone knobs) It can be done with a pushpull if you don't want to drill a hole in your pickguard though.

    ...and I used a push-pull and at first thought it was silly - but now!

    I love it!
