    How does the switching work on the G&L L2000? Is it series and parallel for each pickup? If so, what does that actually mean and what does it do to the sound/output?

    The series/parallel switch works on BOTH pickups at the same time.

    Series is fatter/thicker, more like a StingRay tone while parallel is more like a Fender tone.
  4. I've actually found that the parallel is much more stingray-like, on all three G&Ls and two Rays that I have owned. The stock stingray pickup is wired in parallel, so it makes sense to me.
