Looking for wiring diagram

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by Bassguitarbubba, Oct 3, 2008.

  1. Hi gang!

    I'm building a P/J bass with two concentric pots, one for each pup. I'm also adding a 3-way (on-on-on) pup selector switch. I've soldered before and I'm good at reading a wiring diagram. I've been to the Fender website and got the wiring diagram for the '62 RI J bass, which has the concentric pots. Unfortunately, there are no diagrams that I found on how to install the 3-way switch. (The Duff McKagan bass has a 3-way switch, but Fender does not supply a diagram for that model.)

    Anybody know where I can get a wiring diagram? Or does someone already have one they can post or send to me?

    As always, I appreciate any help I can get.
  2. Thank you...thank you...thank you!!!

    I saved the link. Although the wiring diagrams they had that fit my particular wiring set up (2 vols and 2 tones) were focused primarily on Les Pauls, I'm reasonably certain the 3-way switch will be wired in a similar fashion. It actually looked pretty easy...two leads coming from the switch to each of the vol pots, the third lead going to the output jack and a forth lead going to ground.

    Please let me know if that sounds right. Of course, I'll know as soon as I solder it all together whether it's right or not.. :)

    Thanks again!
