I've spent the last several months rebuilding my old Peavey, and it's coming up on the time to replace all the inside goodies and wires. I've never done this before, but I believe I have all the gear needed to do the job. I just have a few questions about everything. The pickups I'm installing is a set of Basslines Quarter Pound SPB 3's with 500k pots. Here is a copy of the wiring diagram. And here are my questions. While the answers might be obvious, I just wanted to make sure before I started anything. Do the wires have to touch each other in the solder locations, or can they just lay in the general area and all the signals will pass through the solder? The third tab on the volume control, am I correct to think it needs to be bent upwards and laid flat on the bottom of the pot? Is it ok if I trim the ends of the new capacitor to make things fit better, of must I leave them the normal length?
