Pickup:: Parallel Wiring



Now here is an alternate wiring method for the Precision Bass (P-Bass), or any other bass which as a split pickup (G&L, Squire, Ibanez, etc.)  This method has the sensors in parallel wiring mode.  This wiring method shown is for passive sensors.  NOTE: You may be able do this with active sensors, but you need to get power to the sensor.

This method (passive parallel wiring) will give your bass a "brighter sound". You may also notice that the output of the bass is weaker, and this is because you have cut your sensor impedance in half with this method.

Note: that the sensors are wired this time in parallel, not series.  This method has some benefits, and some draw backs too.  You may wish to install a Double Pole Double Throw (DPDT) switch, in order to change this wiring configuration to the standard series_wiring on the fly, while playing.
