    So I have an old Bass that I bought that was gutted. Originally, It had a (I believe) a 3-way switch (On/Off/On) or something to that effect, 1 Tone, 1 Volume and an Output jack (Of course). So I've bought some new pickups and wire, waiting to buy pots and capacitors and such until I get help. My question is: how in the world do I wire it all up? I'm familiar with the normal P-Bass configuration but this is just completely wack to me. Any advice? What do I need to get/do to hook all this up properly? Thanks in advance, and sorry for my stupidity lol.

    What sort of pickups do you have, and how many?

    Use the wiring diagram for a telecaster guitar.

    This is what I would do, unless you want some other strange wiring.
