    a dual coil what?
    A dual coil J is usually wired Series.
    Dual coil stock MM usually Parallel (iirc), or with a S/Sc/P switch.

    Depends on the pickup, and what tone you're going for. I'd do the S/Sc/P, but if you want simple then choose which sounds better on your pickup and go with that one.
