How do I mod my Sire V7 for series/parrallel?

    So I really like the idea of modding my V7 to be series/parrallel. But all the diagrams I find are Vol (neck), vol (bridge), and tone. rather then the V7 set up which is Vol/blend/tone.

    Can someone send me a diagram on how to do this mod. Or even better... if you have done this mod on a Sire V7 can you put through an audio example of series/parrallel?

    Many thanks.

    Before you buy a switch I would wire the pickups in series to hear what it sounds like. the signal might overload and distort the preamp or cause a hum

    I would suggest going from a jazz pickup to a soapbar, to be able obtain what your looking for. Cause either way with the jazz pickups your gonna be to much volume or volume to low.

    Found this. All that is important is what is happening from the pickups to the switch to the blend pot. If any pot on the bass can be switched to a push/pull to save drilling, great. Otherwise, you may have to get a DPDT on-on switch.

    much appreciated. Will have a good look at this when i get home from work.

  7. The blend pot in that drawing would become useless in the series position.

    Seymour Duncan has a drawing for switching on their site.
    In that one you have two volumes in parallel, but only one volume works in series.
    Zoobiedood and Blu bro like this.
