Question about Duncan Designed JB101 pickup wiring - please help.
I recently purchased a Squier VM Jazz Bass in mint condition, except for the bridge pup not working. I got it for a great price and figured there was a loose wire. The original owner never learned to play it so was just wanting a bit of cash. Anyway, I open it up and no loose wires. But comparing it to the Duncan website diagrams, it is not wired at all the same. Also, all the diagrams show two wires coming off the pups, but these have three - one white, and two black. I am figuring maybe the other black is a ground of some kind? So far I am not having any luck getting that bridge pup to make a noise of any kind. I have not rearranged all the wiring to match the diagram yet, but I thought maybe someone else has run into this and could give me some guidance about the three wires before I do any more rearranging of wiring.
This guy I bought it from did not seem the type to have messed around with it, but who knows. I am surprised the wiring is so different from what Duncan shows for those pups.
Any thoughts or tips would be appreciated. I did do a search on here and through Google, and am coming up with only two wire diagrams.
If we weren't all crazy, we would go insane...
