    I've recently recovered a bass from an overly-enthusiastic luthier.

    The pickup was returned like this:



    I may have been able to guess with 3 terminal, but 8!?

    I think I need a schematic.

    And, these were in an active bass, can they be run passive?

    I'm pretty sure the rear-mount brackets are after-market.

    The matching P pickup was far more scrutable.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    Might be coils for each string? I'm not sure.

    Many thanks, now I have a starting point!

    That is a complicated pickup.
