Hey Russell/All,

Thanks so much for all of the excellent info. Could you please repost or, email the original document, the comcast site link is no longer available. Actually had this bookmarked and would refer back :). The wiring mod really piqued my curiosity. The NS has been the answer to my lifelong and tumultuous conflict from my love of Bass and Guitar :D. Now, I have secured the absolute perfect set of effects (Boss GT-10B, Korg AX3000G and Boss SY-300). These constitute my "Perfect Storm" of effects for Bass, Guitar and Synth but, I need more flexible options with the pickup/stereo switching from the NS. Your suggestion sounds perfect and would definitely love to re-read :).

BTW, for those using the Roland GK pickup for GR synth devices, please look into the Boss SY-300. This is a really fast tracking Guitar/Bass synth solution which uses the analog signal coming directly from the pickups...NO GK pickup needed. I am here to tell you, it is flawless and the output is very clean on all 8 NS Strings!!!! Imagine life w/o that GK controller attached to that sexy NS Stick :).

Thanks Again, Love you all :)

Sorry about that. Comcast dropped their web services. Let's see if I can upload them here as zip files. Nope, too big.

IM me and I can email them to you.

Oops. My mistake. There was backup junk in the directories and that made the zips too big. This should work now.

Hi Russell.

Thanks so much for putting all that together. This is a really important read for me at the moment, helping me to contextualise my GAS for an NS half fretless.

One thing, I couldn't access your link to the follow up review. Any suggestions ?

The neck and bridge pickup outputs can be handled separately (each includes all 8 strings,) by sending them to different effects, amps, 2 tracks for recording ...

and if you don't need any of that you can return to stock with a press of the volume knob



I could use ALL of that Russell. I've been trying to find a way to send effects to each string separately.

NS - maximum playability with maximum mutability.?

In order to send effects to each string, you will need individual coils (pickups) from each string. If you feel like experimenting, check this out.

This is the first URL I came up with. There are probably other people doing this.
