I have the thunderbird pro V bass. As I read in other sites the humbucker on the bass have a red cable that not is in use. People thinks that this cable is for active purposes but the pickup is passive, the cable is for serie-parallel configuration. I make the wiring diagram with the pots to make this possible but making it 2 single coils instead of one humbucker can be useful? Anyway the electronics in this bass sucks, low volume output for a active im thinking in changing it all and rewire it more solid.
