    i did a search on the bass-ives, and i couldent find anything quite like this, so, here we go, im trying to wire a single musicman humbucking pickup to a tone and a volume pot for a bass im making.

    heres the diagram ive borrowed and made my own

    will this work? i know that the pots have to be grounded... does this diagram have them grounded?

    im feeling more and more stupid here. and a little help would be nice.

    somebody? anybody....?

    is this even in the right forum!
  3. Well, I guess the pots should be wired the same as on any P-Bass.

    There are plenty of those schematics around... let me see...

    I've never had a MM-type humbucker so I'm not sure... aren't there more than two cables coming from it?
    Also a different capacitator-rating than on the P-Bass might be better.
    (I don't know much about wiring-theory... sorry)

    Maybe you can find the schematic for those OLP MusicMan basses. They have passive wiring.

    Hope this helps a bit. And good luck with your bass.

    yes, and yes. :)
  5. this is as per P bass...the cap at 047 is pretty standard and relates to frequency.
    i am practicing with my paint program just now:)

    ps a MM should be 4 core and wired parallel with series and a single coil option available.
    who makes your MM...kent armstrong?:cool:
