    Has anybody of u basslovers out here any pics of the control cavity of ur basses?

    Asking this ONLY for getting some reference to the real pro´s way to the wiring and my own..

    Just to see if we´re on the same level...


    Please...

    Here is the control cavity for the Koa Warmoth bass I built. I installed a Sadowsky preamp & used sheilding paint.

  5. Nino -- how are you handling your grounding in this set-up? It looks like you're grounding to a common point on the sheilding paint, but then what? Is your bridge ground then connected to this point or somewhere else on the shielding paint? I've seen this pic before and wanted to get a better understanding of what's going on. Thanks!

    All of the ground points (back of pots, pickups, input jack, preamp, bridde) are connected to the post essentially connecting them all.
