    I have a Hohner B2A bass and have made the huge mistake of removing the electronics without drawing a diagram of how the hell to put it all back together again I have all the components needed just no clue as to how they wire up.

    Has anyone got a circuit diagram for the active circuitry or even an idea of what goes where on the board????:confused: :confused:
     
  2. LOL- I did exactly the same thing as you, and 6months later decided to put the circuit back in, and spent weeks figuring out the wiring:D

    mine is an early version which has a small circuit board inside a metal can, which fits into the battery compartment on the opposite side of the bass to the control cavity-

    and the control cavity is small containing only the pots, switch and output jack.



    the later models have everything contained in just one larger cavity.

    which type is yours?

    I've got the B2ADB and it's getting Bill Lawrence EB50's, soon. I have the pickups here. Bass is off getting a fret dress and I've been a bit slack in going to pick it up.
