        It's the same wiring as a Godin Radiator. Seems funky right up until you need a quick tone change mid-song or use a different tone each song, at which point it becomes irritating. Works OK for bass players because most just pick one tone and stick with it for an entire set. When I started playing bass I asked the question on a bass forum about putting a switch in for pickup selection and got asked "why would anyone do that?".

              I'm actually a set and forget kinda guy, so I think this will be awesome. I'm a rhythm player. I just need that nice semi crunch jangle and I'm set.

                  Another VERY good point. I wouldn't want to run without a pickup switch - at least not on the guitar. On bass, it's less of an issue for exactly the reason you mentioned. While I tend to switch tones a bit more often than "once per set", it's easy enough to dial up what I need from song to song. Mid-song changes are less common, but my main bass has active electronics and a bit more flexible controls than what a J or P bass has, so even if I want to change something as I'm playing, it isn't hard to do. Still, a switch would make it easier to go from one sound to another quickly, and I'm surprised more basses don't feature them. OTOH, many have pickup blend knobs, which can serve a similar purpose, but with added mix flexibility.

                      I wouldn't need to go from one sound to another quickly. Mostly just a set and forget strum the **************** out of.


                      Good info in here. Thanks guys.
