Wiring a Jazz for parallel/series and two tone adjustability

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by fatboy250, Apr 6, 2006.

    I believe this is for guitar, but I'm assuming it can be applied to bass too, right? If I'm understanding this right, with this setup one could have both series and parallel settings as well as one pup or another and tone adjustability with each pup, correct?

    Has anyone done this?

    Not exactly. That diagram is for a simple Les Paul-type two pickup setup with a pickup selector switch and separate volume and tone controls for each pickup. The pickups will be in parallel with each other--no series/parallel switching.

  3. you still could do it.

    just need a switcher to comlete a paralell and cut the series, and vice versa.
  4. Ok then, could it be wired to have all those options in one switch? parallel/series/neck only/ bridge only, with tone adjustment option for both pups still?

    Anyone done anything like this?
  5. Sorry, quick side point. Could anyone recomend a good website where I can learn how to read circuit diagrams like the one above?
