How would I wire this?

    Hey all, was just browsing eBay, when I found this:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...ndexURL=0&photoDisplayType=2#ebayphotohosting
    I'm buying a cheapo Fender P-bass, which is routed for PJ pickups. It needs new ones, new pots, and new output jack. I was just wondering if anyone had a wiring diagram of how I would do this? I never did the wiring myself, and don't have the cash to pay someone else to do it.

    Thanks a million,
    Ray

    just find a standard jazz bass wiring diagram and use that. Regardless of the fact that you have a P and a J as opposed to two J's, you're still dealing with two pickups - each of which has a hot lead and a ground lead.

    You can find diagrams on places like stewmac.com, guitarelectronics.com or basslines.com

    Take a look and let me know if you have any questions

    good point Billy.
    They'll have the wiring diagram there for the hot-rod precision, which is pretty much exactly what you're looking for.
