I'm finally bringing to the workbench some basses I have let languish far too long, of the same type as the red bass at this link: http://www.carvinmuseum.com/decade/65-basses.html
I'm starting with the single-pickup basses, which all seem to have two things in common: necks that bow badly when tuned to pitch, and wonky, changed-from-factory wiring.
I know the corrective for neck bow, but the (mis)wiring on each bass is so one-of-a-kind that I have elected to disconnect the harness on each bass and rewire from scratch using the diagram here as my blueprint. http://www.guitarnucleus.com/wiring.html
This works fine for basses still at factory spec, but a couple of these have been stripped and refinished and have had different pickups installed; and the pickups have more than just one hot and one ground lead, like they have capability for switching although no switch was ever installed. At least one of these extra wires is color-coded green, and I don't know where to connect these or any of the other "extra" pickup leads.
I'm not interested in adding switches just to accommodate these extra leads, so coming off the pickup, what should I connect the other end of these leads to?
