Customer Comments

Here's what customers are saying about this AweSome-Enhanced instrument.

The cost is much less than what you would pay for the name brand equivalent — but you get a lot more performance and versatility.

This NEW electric bass has been AweSome-Enhanced to give you 21 pickup tones right out of the box.

This bass is also perfect for that budding player in your family. Now you can treat them to the very best.

Want MORE Versatility?

This AweSome-Enhanced instrument gives you complete and total control over your pickups. And because you can independently control each pickup coil, you can turn each one on in normal-phase or reverse-phase, and you can also put them in parallel-connection or series-connection. The bottom line is that you can get more pickup tones from your AweSome-Enhanced bass that previously only gave you 3 pickup tones.

Using The T3PJ-Switch

The T3PJ-Switch has these five mini-toggle switches: (SW1, SW4, SW2, SW5, SW3).
SW1 and SW2 are ON-OFF-ON switches. SW4, SW5 and SW3 are ON-ON switches.

Here is what each switch does.

SW1 turns the Bridge "J" (Jazz Bass) pickup coil (coil-1) Off and On. The middle position of this switch is Off. The Down position turns the pickup On (in normal-phase) and the Up position turns the pickup on (in reverse-phase).
Note: If SW4 is Up; both the SW1 and SW2 switches MUST both be On or no sound is produced.

SW4 puts the Bridge "J" and the two "P" pickup coils in either a Parallel connection or Series Connection. Down is Parallel, and Up is Series. When Down, the "J" pickup coil (coil-1) or the "P" pickup coils (coil-2 and coil-3) can be turned On either separately or together. When Up, BOTH the "J" and "P" pickup coils MUST be On (see SW1 and SW2) or no sound will be produced.

SW2 turns the two "P" (Precision Bass) pickup coils (coil-2 and coil-3) Off or On. The middle position of this switch is Off. The Down position turns the "P" pickup coils On. When SW2 is Down, the "P" pickup coils can be further controlled by SW5 and SW3 using the rules described for these switches.
Note-1: If SW4 is Up; both the SW1 and SW2 switches MUST both be On or no sound is produced.
Note-2: The Up position of SW2 is non-functional.

SW5 puts the two "P" pickup coils (coil-2 and coil-3) in Parallel connection or Series Connection. When Down, the two coils are in Parallel connection. When Up, the two coils are in Series connection.
Note: The SW5 switch will only work if the SW2 switch is in the On position.

SW3 changes the phasing of the "P" pickup coils (coil-2 and coil-3). Down puts the coils in normal-phase and Up position puts the pickup coils in reverse-phase.
Note: The SW3 switch will only work if the SW2 switch is in the On position.

The T3PJ-Switch will give you 21 unique pickup tones from a bass with PJ pickups.
