  1. i am the one rambling about the DP 127 Dimarzio pickups. Does anyone know how to install the pickups to a P-Bass???
    And what is this i hear about "soldering" or whatever...i hear you have to melt metal to install the pickups...can anyone help?

    Yes... a repairman can help. ;) You do have to have a modicum of skill to do the required soldering, or you will certainly have trouble. It's really not hard, but you should learn on something other than your bass.

    As far as wiring diagrams, the Seymour Duncan web site has some nice clear ones. http://www.seymourduncan.com

    I posted a reply to your other thread Re the DP127 (sweet!).
    In it, I mentioned Stewart-MacDonald. They have a bunch
    of good books about wiring, stomp boxes, etc. ~
    Here's another page of wiring diagrams ~
    You can now order online (whoo-hoo!).

    Max Power's right. Do some practice solderin' first.
