EBMM JP XI – Bridge pickup
I recently obtained a JP XI and I like it quite a bit. I do find that the bridge pickup seems a little sterile and stiff to my ears. Now I also have a EBMM Axis which I also love. In particular the neck pickup of the axis is amazing – esp with my Mesa Mark V (mark iv mode).
Here is my question. If I want to replace the bridge the pickup on the XI and go for something smoother and creamier sounding. It doesnt have to do the exact sound of the Axis bridge – but something along the same lines.
Question 1 – can someone recommend a Dimarzio pickup that will sound similar to what the Axis has in the bridge pickup?
Question 2 -On the JP XI what is the difference between toggle switch up in the middle position and toggle switch down in the normal position? Serial vs Parellel? What does this mean?
