    Hiya Watt, I noticed on your thudstaffs page that you have an EB3 with three pickups (the blue one). I know there's an OBP3 preamp in there, but how the heck do you wire that up with three pickups? I can imagine a couple scenarios, like maybe an extra selector switch before the preamp so at any time it's connected to 2 of the pickups. Or maybe just wire two of the pups in parallel with their own volume knobs and feed that into one of the preamp inputs, but that starts to be a lot of knobs to deal with.

    Just wondering cuz I'm thinking of adding a neck pickup to a bass project I'm working on... Thanks!
