...when I opened the electronics'cavity on my Warwick Streamer's back,I realized that...well..."Houston,we have a problem!" I have the original MEC PU's (a PB at the neck and a JP at the bridge) and I intend to keep them on my bass since they're fair enough (it happens to like them alot when I play with the MEC's preamp in the passive mode-pulled volume it is). However,I noticed that the MEC PU's have each a coax signal wire (lead+dress) going to the blend pot AND a third red wire wich is conected to the + side of the battery.What's the meaning of this 3rd wire? On the Noll config (wich is an entirely different story:3-band with parametric mids),I don't see a possible contact place on the blend pot for the 3rd red wire(s) coming from PU's. Any suggestions on how can I wire the new preamp? THX, Le Basseur PS I'll write an email to the factory too but since today is Friday,I don't expect an answer too soon from them and I thought I'd could use this weekend for the preamp's replacement. Also,I read something wich could be tied on my theme on the following thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=152107 ,so I call for Z-Bass.Maybe you had the same issue with your replacement?!?
