    Before I try it, has anyone tried installing an active preamp into a jazz bass already wired for series/parallel switching?
    Did you encounter any problems? The active will be a bartolini with a passive/active push/pull.
    The idea being that I'd like to keep the series/parallel switch.

    Should work fine as long as you do all of the series/parallel stuff before the input to the preamp.
