    hi, all:

    i have an old yamaha 5 string, which has
    a pair of passive jazz pickups, and 3 knobs.

    i would like to upgrade this to active pickups.
    any got wiring schematics?

    i would like the options on the knobs for one of the following
    - volume, balance, tone
    - volume, bass, treble
    - volume, volume, tone

    which do you think is the best?

    thanks all for reading.

  2. Should probably be in the Pickup forum, maybe a mod will notice and move it.
  3. Although i will give it a whirl for an answer. I would go with the volume, bass, treble so you have the two channel eq. And i would go for Bartolini pickups and electronics.
