    Hi,

    I have an Aguilar OBP-3 in my stingray. I recently bought a Bartolini MMC to put in it. The wiring has me all sorts of confused. I don't want to do any coil switching. Thanks for any all help.

    The standard stingray sound is a humbucker wired in parallel, so you should wire the pickup wires as per the diagram you got with the pickup. You'll then have two ground wires and two hot wires going to the master vol or preamp input - I don't know if you have the master volume wired ahead of or after the preamp.
    Hope that helps. If you have any issues let us know what specific problems you have.
