    Well, I got the Geddy and it rocks. When I bought it, the guy at Long and McQuade showed me the new Fender basses with the S-1 Mod to change between paralell and series pick-ups, it sounded great, especially to have that extra versatility. Mind you he only played like four bars of a walking bass line. I didn't have the time to feel it out.

    What do you guys think about this mod. Is it really worth looking into? It would be less than a Hundred bucks to mod, very affordable.

    Could be even more affordable if you make it yourself! :)

    Done it to mine, it's cool. Just get a push-pull pot and wire it up yerself.
  5. The S-1 switching mechanism is quite fiddly. You can do it yourself with either the suggested microswitch or a push-pull pot for far less.
