Im having a basslines alnico pickup installed in my stingray to try and remedy the weak G problem and hopefully get it to sound more like the original stingrays of the 70's. A Tech at Seymour Duncan suddgested to have the pickup wired in parallel rather that series, he said this particular pickup,when wired series, can have to much output and sound farty and broken-up. Any one have any experience with these pickups wired parallel vs. series? The tech also said that the Stingrays of the 70's were wired parellel, and that this would give me a tighter sound and responce, is this true? Ill let you all know how it sounds this weekend.
