Guess it's only a Broadbucker if a cap is in-between the series pups. Looking at the JHLP wiring, the neck's volume pot is included with the neck's ground at the s/p switch. Which was what i was really thinking of. iirc it also lets you roll back the volume pot to 'shut it off' but leaves you with the other pup and not killing the whole sound But with the tone pot at the output, JB style. Is there any benifit to having the cap across the bridge when in series?
Never tried on a bass. My Rick has several different broadbucker options. When the bridge is bypassed by the cap, with all the treble coming from the neck that high end comes out kind of thin and almost disconnected from the body of the tone. I really haven't played with it much, though.
