Howdy, fellow players! I've been playing a StingRay 5 for a few years, mainly fingerstyle, and when doing so I had been using it in series mode (selector switch up - toward neck). When gettin' slap-funky, I would switch to the parallel mode (selector switch down - toward bridge) for the infamous scooped-mid StingRay sound, which, if you play the four string version, is the only configuration available. My question is, how many of you who play either the SR 5 or the Sterling actually use the series setting for anything at all (perhaps even with extreme EQ settings), because I'm finding myself leaning toward just going with the parallel setting for nearly everything (although I can get a pretty good single coil sound with the middle switch position, playing near the bridge). The parallel setting seems like a much more natural, useful tone, in general, and is much more defined in a live band setting. Comments?
