Ok so im not to prepared....i bought a set of Duncan sledge hammer performers pups from GC...i figured $30.00 what the heck...sat down open up the bass cut the wires back but not off the pots planned to un solder them and ....nothing my old soldering gun was dead So there i sat with a wife wanting to put dinner on the table i was using and i had no gun so i thought.... what if i stripped back the remaining wire from the pots and conected the wires together???? no soldering needed. I stripped the wire which was the same size multi strand on my SX P bass and carefully tied and wrapped the wires then i used super glue jell on them to fuse them together and covered them with tight wraps of black tape. I plugged her in and she sounded sweet...no noise but not a huge change in sound over the stock Sx pups... notes sounded a bit clearer thou. Did i do a No-no...i know i should of soldered but i figured there is no movement in there and we wire other things all the time like this.
