    Hello there guys :)

    I'm currently part way into building a Fender Jaguar copy and can't seem to find any wiring diagrams or schematics. Can anybody lend a hepling hand here? It would be very much appreciated :)

    Thank you :)

    My Fender Jag bass has begun creating a lot of noise when im not touching the strings, so i thought id have a nose under the input plate. While doing this, a wire has come off and i cant tell where from! Ive seen the wiring diagram posted above but it looks different to what i have here! Urgent help required!

    Can anyone tell me the pot values for #11 and #12?

    My master tone only modifies the tone by a small amount. I'm going to check the cap, but since pots are cheap I was thinking of replacing the pot/cap entirely.

    The active tone rollers (#12) don't do anything at all. I've triple-checked the wiring and everything is correct. Again, figured I'd replace the pots and see what happens.

    Lastly, if I were to wire in an onboard fuzz effect would this work:

    Replace Volume with stacked Tone/Volume.
    Replace Tone with Push/Pull.
    Output from light green (#24) into fuzz, then out of fuzz into newly installed Push/Pull, then out of P/P into jack?

    Another idea was that if I can't get the active tone rollers to work, to wire the fuzz to one of those rollers. But I don't even have a guess as to how the wiring would work. I'm assuming if I disconnected the wires from those pots that go to the pre-amp that it would kill the active side of the bass. Can I bypass the rollers by just connecting the purple/grey wires and the dark green/orange wires?

    Previous owner has replaced the original PU:s with Bartolinis which have a nice sound in passive, but the active side is botched. Any experiences if this is something that regularily happens because of x when ppl change pickups to Jaguar Deluxe Bass?
