I'm replacing the Noiseless J Pickups in my Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass with Nordstrand NJ4SEs. I'm hoping someone can help me with getting the wiring right!
I'm capable with a soldering iron and, given enough info can mod pedal and repair antique radios, but this is my first time inside an active bass cavity and I'm not totally clear on how to connect these.
I bought the pups off of a fellow TB'er, and the wiring, as I understand it from other posts here on TB, is: W= +, B= -, G (b)= ground. Each pup has black, white and grey wires. So far so good.
I'm having a hard time making out what's going on in the Fender schematic for my bass (attached.) In the bass the neck pup has a black and yellow wire. The bridge pup has black and white wire. I'm trying to make sense of the wires here to figure out what from the Norstrands goes where.
I need assistance understanding which wires in current bass are +, -, ground. And what to do with the 3 wires coming from each Norstrand vs the 2 in the Noiseless J. (Or better yet just tell me where to connect the darn Norstrands!)
Help would be much appreciated. My soldering iron is hot and ready to go!
Total Noob at this stuff, and would appreciate
