    my japanese jazz special(84ish)has the classic p-bass jazz bridge pickup configurastion with 3 way selector switch,when I bought it used it was up-graded with dimarzios in the p-position and a stock jazz.
    M question is whomever wired it did it a bit weird,the 3 way works fine but the nobs are wired a bit off,its hard to explain but the nobs do more than supposed to,like if the selector is in the P and J pos.the P-volume nob will cut out both p-ups while the jazz volume does nothing,then in the p-position the jazz volume if turned off will cut out the p pick-up(while the p knob works as well).
    I know its to much to explain here but does anyone know exactely where i can get a wiring diagram here or elsewhere for my bass ? I want it back to original set-up,with some research it sounds like the p-ups are wired out of phase because of how it sounds and how the controls work,I would like it original if possible.
