    May, let's say a Precision pickup, be wired to 2 completely indipendent circuit in the same instrument?
    IE 2 absolutely standard Vol/Tone/Jack?

    I know there are multiple external solution for this but I'm wondering a system with the vol for each channel right-at-hand.

    May this be done banally just splitting the hot cable right after the pickup?
    How this eventually affect the output of the pickup?
  2. You need two buffers. Trying to just split the signal to two jacks without buffering would result in an impedance drop from the two amp inputs running parallel to each other, and your cable capacitance would increase.

    Wow.. way too tech for my inexistant knowledge.. but ok. It surely sound like a no no.

    Thank you anyway
  4. Not necessarily. You can do it if you want; you will just end up with some tone suck. The bass will be warmer and possibly a bit quieter.
