    I'm totally new to the Sterling, so which is series mode? I haven't moved the switch yet , it's in the bridge position...

    Thanks Bert!
    This true for all Sterlings? Mine is from 2001, and I suddenly got an urge to look under the prickguard

    Edit: Forget it, I used the search function (I know...)

    Well, the Sterling was originally a 4 string version of the 5 String Stingray, which had different electronics than the 4 string. If you've got a 5 String from before 2007, the sound will be very similar to a Sterling.

    I’m just reading back through this. Simple ish question and not silly cause I don’t know the answer. How exactly does a phantom coil work in comparison to a regular pickup?
    I know it’s purpose is to cancel the hum that comes with single coil pickups by creating the same series connection, the pickup is buried under the pick guard but does it actually pick anything up? I suppose my question is how does it not pick anything up ?
