    So all I want to do is to be able to switch between the P pickup of my P/J bass being soloed and then the P pickup + the J pickup full on combined in parallel connection.

    I intend to use a DPDT 6 pin On-On switch for it, as that is what I got at the moment, and I think I know how to do that, but not 100% sure, so could anyone please tell me if I got it right?

    I should probably point out that I intend to bypass all the pots and let the pickups be connected directly to the guitars output jack socket, as is how I got my bass is wired currently.

    Believe me, this is all I need to be able to do, and I don't want more options or anything.


    So this is the switch :

    So would this be the correct way to do it, to achieve what I want? :

    1 = J pickup hot wire

    4 = J pickup ground wire

    2 = P pickup hot wire + my hot connection to the output jack socket's tip

    5 = P pickup ground wire + my ground connection to the output jack socket's sleeve

    3 + 6 = Left empty


    Or simpler:

    1 = J pickup hot wire

    2 = P pickup hot wire + my hot connection to the output jack socket's tip

    5 = Both ground wires + my ground connection to the output jack

    3 + 6 + 4 = Left empty



    If not, then how would I do it correctly?
