    What position is what coil setup on this bass.

    I think it is as follows. The neck/bridge means the position of the switch.
    Neck=series Humbucker
    Middle=parallel humbucker
    Bridge=single coil

    Is this correct????
     
  2. Not quite--it's not like a Sterling/SR5. What the switch does is:

    front coil - both coils - rear coil

    with the front and rear coils actually each being essentially the same hum-cancelling J-style as the front pickup, just combined into one MM-size casing.

    you're right regarding the mid position: humbucker in parallel.
