    Sorry, I'm still not getting it. Or rather, there's a number of things you could mean by that and I don't want to assume.

    What would be the end result of what you're trying to do?

    It sounds sort of like a question I have been thinking of, but I may be wrong, so if I'm wrong on my assumption... sorry. But I need an answer anyway.

    It sounds to me like Luke wants to wire his Stingray in Volume-Volume-tone. This is assuming the pickup is in fact able to be split and is wired as such.

    MY question is in a Stingray 5, how is the pickup wired? I know the switch claims "Series-Parallel-Phantom Coil" (I think, I do things that make me forget). I guess the PU is a splittable humbucker and as such could be wired many ways. My purpose was to see if it could be run on a pan pot (if I put in a U-Retro Dlx), but I didn't know if I could, should, or whatever.

    Maybe my search should continue, but if anyone has the short answer to either question, let us know.
     
  6. any splittable passive humbucker can be wired V/V/T.

    I never thought of that...hmmm...nahhh...not very practical...

    series/single/parallel switch and then V/T is the way to go on buckers.
     
  7. ^^But then it would be great to have volume, volume, tone. It will be a hard mod if it is possible..

    Stock stingray 4 pickups aren't splittable, unless you modify the pickup itself.

    I agree, more usable tones IMO

    There's a doc on the bartolini website that describes how to replace your stock SR5 MM with their replacement, and outlines the stock wiring in the process.
