    I bought this used and realized someone had messed around with the wiring (globs of solder and electrical tape) and when I lifted up the cover several wires undid themselves. I can get sound and volume but nothing else. I know it`s a shot in the dark but if anyone knows where I could find a wiring diagram that would be great...(before I fire it up and start touching wires all over the place). The photo is just to encourage sympathy...Thanks!

    I'm just going to tag-team onto this thread because I have a similar issue. The difference is that I have an older 6-string Aria Pro II SB model which was manufactured before they were installing the Basslines systems. I want to replace the crappy pickups, which are 1" by 5.5" soapbars. The difference between these and the Seymour Duncans is huge: the routing is different and there is no push/pull volume. Instead of 3 knobs there are 2 stacked knobs on the bass (one volume/blend and the other treble/bass).

    Can anybody help find the wiring schematic for the older production models? I found a set of Bartolini pickups that would fit my routing, but they are passive pickups and I don't know if I'd have to switch out the pre-amp as well or what needs to happen?

    Push-pull vols are avail.
    Just swap out the bal pot for the values as in the diagram above- 25ok for passive.
    (assuming the pre' is the same).
