Question About Wiring Doubleneck.

Recommended Posts

So I know that normally on an active guitar or bass, if you leave the cord plugged it it will drain the batteries. I'm thinking about making a doubleneck with two preamps, one for each neck. If I were to use an on/off/on switch between the preamps and the output jack, would it prevent drain to either battery in the "off" position?

Thanks,

As usual, Lovecraft answered your question but I want to complicate your life. On a double-neck, why not go to a TRS output jack, still switching your preamps with the jack, and have 2 soundpath outputs? One for one neck and one for the other. You could use two different amp setups with different effects and have a ball! Lovecraft will have to approve or disapprove the next idea. Plug the two neck outputs into the clean and whatever channel of one amp. A seperator cord will be required. The input sections of some amps may make a mess of this idea. Lovecraft will know better.

Not a bad idea, but not really suitable for what I'm after. I'm thinking about a doubleneck fretted/fretless bass (and only have one amp, anyway).

But I'm sure there are people who would do that, and it's a great idea.

Lovekraft ... could you point me in the direction of a schematic or tutorial for a power switch? I looked around a bit and didn't find anything.

Thanks,
