Using My Jimmy Page-Style Wired Guitar Pickups

I got my guitar set up with Jimmy-Page Style Wiring. Now this makes my guitar ridiculously versatile, and I wanted to discuss the possibilities I have to best make use of this system. In particular, how do I start using the Phase Reverse and Series/Parallel switches? As I don't have a firm understanding of those or how they work.

Shallow and pedantic.

Try asking this in either GG&A or maybe GB&C because this is really not the right forum for this. This forum is about the physical process of playing the guitar.

And on that note... *reported*

i have some guitars with some of those options.

my custom guitar has the parallel/series option. basically series sounds louder and more raw. parallel loses a bit of volume and seems to have a bit more low end.

my heritage 555 custom shop has the upgraded wiring that allows for a set of knobs to throw the pups out of phase. this seems to throw away a bunch of low end, it is a great tool for 'thinning' up the low end making HB's sound more single coil.
