Please don't steal my idea if it actually works! Why couldn't they make an MM/MM bass with 4 coil taps: In each pickup, you could turn on the front 4 and back 4 like a standard coil tap. But, you would also be able to turn on two of the right on the front row, and two on the left in the back row. This way, you could have one bass do MM/MM, MM/J, MM/P, J/P, P/P. J/J, J/MM, P/MM, and any that I missed. You could even invent totally new pickup configurations by turning on the full back, and the left of the front two, etc. Why hasn't anyone done this? P.S. Also, what about hamburger earmuffs? P.S.S. Actually, would this be 6, 4, or 8 coil taps?
