Modern Player Telecaster Bass- Wiring Configuration Help Needed

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by nlmcguire91, Apr 8, 2018.

  1. Alright guys, I'm hoping someone on here can help me out. Can anyone provide me with a wiring diagram?

    Pickups: Fender Wide Range Humbucking Bass Pickups (4-Conductor)
    Selector Switch: Fender Telecaster 4-Position (Neck/Neck+Bridge/Bridge/Neck & Bridge in series)
    Controls: 1 Master Volume/Coil Split 1 Meg Push/Pull, 1 Master Tone

    I'm looking to be able to run both pickups, each in series, and split so that the inner coils are active, outer coils are grounded, in addition to the ability to select each pickup plus run both in series.

    Thanks guys

    Subbing as I'm interested in these options as well for my starcaster bass.
  3. I got it sorted, though I nixed the 4-position switch in favor of a traditional 3-position Tele blade switch. It simplified the wiring, and I was able to find a diagram for it easily online. I did need to adapt the color coding for the wires, so I’ll try to draw a diagram to post here later
