    G’day guys, I just picked up this little monster as a fretless project and was wondering if anyone can help me out with the wiring and electronics selection for the pots, jack, switching and whatnot. The photo shows the reversed P pickup at the neck and this cool double row J at the bridge and I want to get the most out of this thing so I’m seeking the best way to wire this bad boy up. Thanks in advance 9828CB7D-7B89-4021-8395-C59788D265A5.jpeg

    Not enough information.
    Do you want volumes, blend, a switch, coil splitting, series/parallel, etc?

    I'm highly opinionated and extremely self-assured
    Yep. What’s your definition of “best”?

    If it were me, I’d do Master Volume/Switch/2-band active pre with a side jack.

    Or maybe Master Volume/Switch/ToneStyler.

    If you don't want to drill any new holes, and assuming there isn't a hole on the side for an output jack, then I'd recommend throwing a standard stacked V/T, VT, jack setup in there. See early 1960's Jazz Bass wiring guides.

    TBH you don't need a treble-cut knob when you've got two pickups. You control the blend with the volumes.
    Stacked (concentric) volumes, one knob for both pickups
    series/parallel toggle switch (for the bridge pickup)
    Switchcraft output jack

    I'd go with two switches. On/off for the P, on/off/single for the humbucker.
