  2. Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    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.
