    It says on the site that it has a series/parallel/singlecoil toggle. It has two jazz pickups. I understand how to wire two jazz pickups in series/parallel, but what does single coil do? Does it just use the neck pickup?

    Would I be able to rewire the 4 string Rumblefish with a push/pull series/parallel volume control? Works on a jazz, so didn't see why it wouldn't work on these. Only way to get one with both series/parallel and independent volume controls...(except for the Brad Houser....)
     
  3. I'm sure you could. Do you have a Rumblefish now? You could always call and talk to Joe about it.

    While the web site says the single coil mode is the neck pickup, on my R5L (an early one) it's the BRIDGE which makes more sense to me.
     
  6. Personally, I never use the single coil setting. I play 75% series and 25% parallel.
