    Hi. I am repairing a bass. It is a Washburn XB200. It has after market pickups in it. They are the EMG pj. I need to replace the pots. Currently, it has 2 volume, tone and a 3 way switch. I would like to have volume, bass, treble and a pan. Any ideas of where I can get this? the pickups are active.
    Thank You!

    Talk to an EMG dealer. To get bass and treble controls you will have to add additional circuitry that isn't already in the bass.

    what Bob said. Just because the pickups are active doesn't mean you have active eq capabilities.

    The EMG-BTC system is what you need. You can also get the BTC control seperately to use with any pups.

    Don't mention it. :D There may be a better price out there than Guitar Parts Depot... Don't forget to post up when you get it finished! Inquiring TB'ers want to know.

    I've done a lot of dealings with dguitarparts.com, they have the BTC system for $79.
