    I'm trying to figure out how to wire the P-style pickup of a Westone bass I have. I once had both pickups (J and p) replaced to Fender Custom Shop 62 reissue, but now I;m selling it and want the original ones in again. The problem is that I never has it wired correctly as I got it just like that... (wrong wired)

    The J pickup is passive and works fine but the P is the one that is not "clear" to me... It consists of two sepetrate units (like all P do)
    and each of the units has 3 soldering points. no wires are connected into them.

    In each unit, the left most and right most solder spots are the ones that starts and ends the PU wire loop. But how about the middle one ?? I think the P pickup is active as I couldn't get a loud signal from it. Instead I get a very low signal.

    How do I wire it up ??

    No info found so far on the web.

    Thanks.
