    I wired up the bartolini NTMB just as the wiring diagram shows, and I can't get my bass to make a sound... I don't get what is wrong...

    The wiring diagram is here: Bartolini NTMB Wiring Diagram

    If anyone has any suggestions on this subject, it would be greatly appreciated. Is there some little trick that bartolini isn't telling me?

    Battery? It could be a ground.

    Yup, the battery is in and wired correctly. I really have no idea if it is a ground loop or something. How would I figure out if it is a grounding problem?

    Well, I was able to fix it. I guess I wired the mid pot backwards, but I'm not sure how that would keep it from giving me any sort of sound.
