I bought a set of T-40 pickups off of the TB classifieds. They haven't arrived yet, but searching the internet I haven't found the answer to my questions. These are going in a custom build, and I have no intention of wiring them like the original T-40. The T-40 is an awesome bass, capable of many different tones, but I don't want or need that many options, so I'm just going to keep it simple. I'm probably just going to wire them in series and do a standard VVT set up. How do these pickups sound wired in series? I like a lot of upper mid snarl, and don't care to get to muddy. If I find them to be to muddy in series, how anemic do they sound wired in parallel? I want this bass to have balls. Also I'm guessing that red and white are positives and the bare and black wire are the grounds. Correct me if I'm wrong here.
