Hey, uh, stupid question but, what would, hypothetically, happen to wire my output jack backwards.

    Hey, so, yeah. I’m stupid and I wired backwards and inverted to what I want. So, how would I get sound to my amp if I wanted to test if my jack burnt out really. Thanks for any responses, have a nice day.

    Wire it the right way and see if it works.

    I'm highly opinionated and extremely self-assured
    Passive bass? Not a problem, other than possibly some noise due to shield being on the hot side.

    Active bass? Lots more opportunity for problems.

    Output jacks don’t “burn out”.
