    I recently took out the pick ups of a cheapo 5 string bass to sand the body, and I´m not sure if I put the split coil pups back in their place the way the were before..

    So... after reading what AllodoX wrote in a tuning thread somewhere.. I was wondering if each individual coil (or whatever it is) is made to work for a specific string...

    Help , please..
