Bill Lawrence's J45 wiring

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by ogar, Sep 22, 2005.

  1. Hello
    Just recieved the J45s and am kinda puzzled from the wiring scheme. I did search on some forums elsewhere, but still do not get it. Is the Blend pot from BL scheme the same as the blend pot from for example Warwicks or other "modern-basses"? I mean, it its function to pan between pups?
    I read that Bill is strongly againts classic V-V-T wiring. Can someone explain me why and what is the alternative (Vol-Blend-Tone?) Ufff, thanks!

    Bill is a man of strongly held convictions. Not all of them are 'gospel' though. I wired up a P46 & J45 in the standard V-V-T format and it worked fine.

    yeah, I got an explanation once from John East in this forum as to what the wiring did - if you search you should find it. But like 4Mal, I wired them up regular no problem
