    I have this wiring harness that is for a P bass, a switchcraft jack and all cloth wiring. The pots date to '65, the pots are centralab, not CTS-thus these most likely were for a gibson, this harness may have been to a LP junior or something. Anyways it all functions and is a complete unit you could wire to a P bass pickup and use-I see these pots alone going for $50 each on ebay, I just want that for the whole unit.

    [DEL]$50 [/DEL] $30 Shipped CONUS


    The 2 pots date codes come up as shown:

    This potentiometer was made by
    Mepco/CentraLab, Inc.
    in the 47th week of 1965

    If half way through the sweep it is at half value then it is Linear, if not it's Audio. More importantly, what are these 250K? 500K?

    They actually do not have a stamp on them that declares if they are 250 or 500. I looked and looked and saw nothing.

    This would've been cool. I just bought a harness for $34 from Bestbassgear, but had I seen this, I would've gotten it. Just to add to the vintage flavor of the neck you just set. Poo.
