Effect on the sound by having a Parallel/Series Switch

  1. What is the effect on the sound of a bass, which has a Series/Parallel switch between the pick-ups ?? Is it a common mod ?? Is it difficult to do ??

    The new S1 switch on Fenders does this I believe. The switch takes you from P bass tone to a J bass tone. I personally like the switch better on a Jazz because they pull the J tone and and the deep P tone, whereas the P gets the P tone and is not very good at getting the J tone.

    I could be wrong about the switch though.
