Re: 5 way switch, 2nd position parallel, anyone tried this?
I did briefly on an S with evos, and I have run Series/Parallel push/pulls or microswitches on just about every guitar I owned until I became an S convert. I'm finding I prefer the inner coils position and I use it a lot more than parallel bridge, but I think because it's easy to get to with a 5-way.
I'm considering the following next time I open up the S:
1 Bridge series
2 Bridge parallel
3 Inner coils
4 Neck parallel
5 Neck series
However that might be 3 really samey sounds that can be condensed to a 3 way with
1 bridge series
2 inner coils
3 neck series
I keep toying with options for more sounds, but what I actually need is to be able to switch between a few that I actually use without having to think how to get there, flip multiple switches, pull out a push-pull, or contemplate the choice between several similar options. That said, I'm collecting different sounding guitars each with a purpose or two in mind rather than trying to get one to do everything.
