uber electronics overhaul!!!

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Nick Ioannucci, May 3, 2006.

  1. ok so hears the deal. Im going to soon be ordering new pick ups for my MIM fretless jazz(fender SCN) along with a BAII and i figured hey i know how to solder and i dont like my current set up. so this is what i would like to do. i am going to completely shield the bass(no help needed there) and change the V/V/T to V/Blend/T, add a DPDT switch for series/parallel and possibly a cut off toggle switch. pretty much, although i have experience with wiring things(my dads an electrician) i dont have any experience with audio. i know im going to need a dpdt switch a blend pot(?) an SPDT switch and copper shielding tape. so it would be great if you guys(wonderful guys at that) could provide me with a wiring diagram and what type of blend pot to use(250k?)

    P.S. while searching ive seen diagrams with 'caps'. what are these and do i need one? once again please and thank you.

    There are FAQ stickies at the top of the e/p forum.
    A diagram like this
    is there.
    Another place is www.guitarelectronics.com or www.stewmac.com
    If your going to series /parallel your bass, just get a pull up vol. that does it and save drilling another hole for a switch.
    A capacitor is used in conjunction with the tone pot to bleed off the high frequencies. The value of which will determine the scale of how much is cut. A .047 uf cap is typical in passive basses. If you want to bypass a tone knob all together, then one won't be needed.
  3. well i specifically want the switch, why i dont know, but have no quams about drilling holes. i guess the only thing i really need to pick up is a 25ok blend pot, after searching around(the switches and other stuff i can get for free *woot*)
