    Has anyone experience with the difference in sound when rewiring (e.g. 2 emg-j's) from parallel to series?

    The parallel to series trick is pretty easy to do.
    It gives a Jazz Bass a very growly earthy tone with bright highs, not too far from a StingRay type of sound.
    I might be wrong, but I don't think it's possible to wire active pickups like EMGs series.
