    OK, I'm a drummer and not a bass player. But I'm building a cheap bass kit with my 12 year old bass player. I finish a lot of drum stuff but never built a bass. It's a cheap kit but I just wanted him to start learning to work on gear and this seemed a good way to do it.


    Problem is that it came with NO instructions. So far we've got the bridge placed and neck holes drilled. Now to take it apart and stain/finish. I need to start figuring out the electronics.Tons of wiring diagrams out there for PJ's but this one came with 4 knobs. Two have caps so I assume two vol, two tone? The P pickups are joined by a blue wire and have a single shielded output wire containing the bare shield and a white wire. The bridge humbucker has a white/red (twisted together), a black, and a green (twisted with bare shield).

    ANY help is greatly appreciated and thanks for letting me join the forum.
