I have some questions about the late-model American Series Basses, not the 2008 American Standards. 1. S-1 Switching? I know it does series/paralell, but how does that affect the SOUND? 2. Why do so many players dislike the S-1 Feature? 3. Does String-Thru-Body increase Low B tension? If you could answer these to the best of you ability, not just opinion, that'd be great. Aesthetically, I LOVE the 2008 American Standard, especially a Sunburst/Rosewood Jazz V Thanks!
