edit: see later posts. type of humbucker has been found, now what remains is the which and how, as well as additional questions tldnr: (need a humbucker that can be split to a p-shaped humbucking single, a jazz shaped single and a full double row buck. what is it, where can i get it, how do i wire it? do i need a unit to make a mishmash of pickups and preamp work together? if so what is it and where can i get it?) K, so i want to create a WORKHORSE bass guitar. It has to cover the tones I need all in one (by using push pull or mini toggles to swap pickup config selection.). I'm having trouble finding a certain pickup, was wondering if you guys knew which fits the bill or how to turn one that i can get into the one that i need. the required tones are: (if looking at it straight on to see the exposed polepieces, with possible dummy coils farthest away from you, aka underneath the unit) -the top left and bottom right area of the bucker for a p-bass sound as, say, setting #1 (preferably also top right and bottom left for the other split-p pickup sound as setting #1.5. I refuse to use a straight line pbass pickup for the p-sound, the split P is what i'm looking for) -then also the top left and bottom left for a single jazz sound as setting #2 (preferably also both rights for a slightly different single jazz sound as setting #2.5) -all 4 coils for a sounds like the neck-side pickup on a 2H stingray as setting #3 (for example, i know about the way rays only sound like rays with MM preamp or comparable unit) is this possible? am i thinking of a pipe dream? what does a humbucker need to be to be switchable in this way? (how many coil, how many wire, etc) any ideas on an exact humbucker that can do both the "split-p" sound when split diagonally and the "jazz pickup" sound when split into single coil? this to me is the most important. it's ok if it can't do both sides interchangeably, what's important is that it gets both major sounds in at least one way. The brand doesn't matter as long as it can feasibly work alongside a delano "the hybrid 5" in the bridge zone, as that's what's going in the bass no matter what. i heard something about a bartolini unit that allows adjustment of resistance to help match pickups to preamps or pickups to each other, or something like that. is this what i need to make two vastly different pickups work well in an active setting with each other? thanks for you help, and sorry about the length. I can create some rough pictures to demo what i mean by which pickups are selected if anyone needs clarification.
