    Payson is looking into this for me also and I wanted to throw this out as well. The pic here is the rotary pickup selector switch showing the Dingwall FD3 leads -Red-Black-Clear. I will probably splice the Nordstrands Black-White-Gray to these instead of the little PC board on the back of the switch.

    Passive Nordy: white=hot, black,gray=ground

    Active Nordy: white=hot, gray=ground, black=preamp common

    I would bet white, black, gray = red, black, clear

    Don't throw it out the window. Send it to me. Seriously, you sound like you need some help from a tech. If you are picking up AM radio, you might have a grounding/shielding problem.
  7. Country music???

    You bought the wrong bass! :p

    Take your bass to a tech

    Sorry, I forgot to reply again. I pulled the selector switch, studied the wiring and got them in. I have an OBP-3 with a mid pot installed and these sound FANTASTIC!!!!

    Resurrected ---- I forgot to ask, Payson, Do you think the reversed angle poles make a difference (opposed to non-reversed) My strings are about 7/32 above the poles. Thanks
