How is it that the pick-ups selection on bass guitars has nothing to do with the 3 way or 5 way switch systems on guitars? I mean both systems are efficient in the way that they allow to select the pick-up you want to be active. Yet, I don’t get it why there are no switch selector on bass guitars. Not that it is going to make me insomniac or drive me crazy, but still an intriguing fact.
- Bassists don’t need to switch pick-ups that often, and particularly during one song.
- Some mysterious historical reason that remained overtime.
Anyone has a clue about this? Maybe the answer to this crucial question?
