PickupBender™ Series-Parallel

The PickupBender™ Series-Parallel mod switches a 4-wire humbucker's coils from standard series wiring to parallel wiring for a thin, bright single-coil pickup sound.

In the past, you had to manually wire and solder the modified circuit and switch in your guitar. Unless you were a skilled guitar tech, the manual installation was a tedious error-prone process.

Now, PickupBender™ makes it simple to install this wiring mod in your guitar without soldering. You don't even need to know how the circuit works, just connect your pickup wires as described in the included user guide and you're ready to rock and roll!

Once you install the PickupBender™ Series-Parallel mod, it's easy to switch the pickup between standard series wiring and parallel wiring. Just pull the control knob out for the parallel wiring single-coil sound, and push the knob in for the standard series wiring humbucker sound.

Each Series-Parallel mod switches only one 4-wire humbucker between series and parallel wiring, so you'll need to install a separate Series-Parallel mod for each pickup. The Series-Parallel mod is similar to the Coil Cut mod, but keeps the humbucker’s noise cancelling properties. Use Series-Parallel if you want a noise-free modern single-coil pickup sound, or use Coil Cut if you want a "vintage" single-coil pickup sound.

PickupBender™ switchable guitar wiring mods are the simplest way to add on-demand pickup rewiring to just about any guitar. They're designed to replace an existing volume or tone control so there's no need to drill new holes in your guitar body or pickguard.
