How would j-bass pickups sound if instead of series wiring, you wired it like a Rickenbacker?

    If you are good with wiring I think you should record it like it is, then change it and record again. Aferwards you can decide which you like better. Or better yet, post a blind voting thread with samples and you'll have pages of expert arguments as to which is which! :D

    A stock Jazz Bass is wired in parallel. They can be wired in series if you want to do that. I have no idea how a Rick's two pickups are wired.
