    I seen this deal on Ebay and it looks good to me.
    Any opinions ? Im gonna keep the stock pick ups for now.

    TAOT Wiring Kit - Jazz Bass® - CTS 250K Solid Shaft Pots, Orange Drop Cap

    What's included:
    • Three (3) CTS 250K 450G Series Solid Shaft, Audio Taper Pots.
      • Durable high quality solid brass bushing & shaft.
      • Vintage-style dish back case
      • Low Friction Turning
      • Each pot comes with nut, lock & dress washer.
      • This is a short shaft pot (bushing is 1/4" tall X 3/8" diameter).
    • One (1) 716P 0.047uf/400V Orange Drop Capacitor
    • 18" of vintage-style 22awg black cloth push back wire
    • 18" of vintage-style 22awg white cloth push back wire
    • 1 - 1/4" Switchcraft #11 Mono Jack
    • Wiring Diagram
  2. Those seem normal. I had to get new electronics for my P Bass and the pots I bought included a capacitor in them as well. I got all my parts from my local music store. All Fender parts.

    Try to see if you can't get them locally. The stuff you listed should be accessible at your local music store and hardware store (for wires and stuff).

    I also got 250K solid shaft pots and a new jack. The wires I just salvaged from my old electronics. The only new wire I had to include were the pot connectors. Other than that, it worked out fine. It all cost me about $40 plus tax.

  3. And as for wiring diagram, don't buy that. You can find one online and they're about the same anyways. Why spend money on a diagram when it's accessible on the Net?

    I did the P-Bass version on my Roadworn (along with upgraded pickups) and the result was fabulous.

  6. No problem. :) I forgot mention the $40 + tax I spent also included Schaller Straploks but I didn't mention it initially because I didn't think it was important enough since we were talking about electronics parts and all. :)
