If I wire two pickups to a single volume pot:
Will they both work?
Will they be wired in series or parallel? I suspect parallel but am hoping someone with more knowledge about this will know for sure.
The bass is an OLP 4 string MM. It has a single humbucker but has wires for the individual coils and is wired passively like two single coil J pickups, volume, volume, tone. I’d like to add a 2nd P style pickup. I thought I’d combine the hot wires of the two halves of the MM pickup to a single pot then wire the P pickup to the second pot. I think it should work (the operative word there is “think”). Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
I wired the hot wires of both coils of the MM to one volume pot and routed a cavity and pick guard, installed the P pickup and wired it to the second pot. Works like a charm, a P and MM sound on one instrument! Here’s a pic:
