    I have a Fender Jazz Deluxe and I am going to put in Dimarzio Model J pickups. Since this bass has active electronics, is it possible to do a series/parallel mod on this bass? It has a single volume, blend & a 3 band eq. I searched the threads and saw this question asked but no answer.

    FWIW:

    Without contemplating the wiring, off the cuff I can think of no reason why not.

    Any more information on modding a deluxe jazz? Has anybody actually done it yet?

    it all depends on the current circuitry in there. If it's pots mounted on a pcb, it's trickier. If it's a standard volume pot, no reason it can't be done.
