It's almost done. I just wired it up today following a "Jazz bass with a blend" scheme - a master volume, a master tone and a blend. Much to my pleasure (and surprise) when I plugged it in, it actually worked! I was utterly amazed. I fully expected bupkiss - I got much more! Ok - there is a pretty significant buzz when the tone is turned up at all and when the blend is in the middle position (both pups on) the volume cuts in half. Clearly I still have work to do. BUT - both pups work. The P-style sound as you would expect - the Magnaflux pup at the neck is fat and not very well defined, but it works. It does sound a little like the neck pup on a Jazz - nice and round and woody - but nowhere near as healthy. But for taking a bass that was dead and ugly as sin to a bass that is not dead and no ugly, I am pretty damn pleased with my first project! You can see progress pics here http://picasaweb.google.com/Tony.Zerbolio/OutlawX610Rehab And I will upload sound files soon - after I reopen its guts and revisit my wiring. I learned that I really suck at soldering and I suspect that I have somehow wired the pups out of phase and did not ground them properly. Being that I do not know what the condition of the pups were prior to my experiment, I don't know if cleaning up my wiring and grounding will make much of a difference - but I know it won't hurt. Before this project, I could have tossed this thing on a trash heap and not thought twice about it. Now, I can't imagine getting rid of it. More to come!
