    Hey guys, i need help wiring this cables, as you can tell by the pictures it´s a cheap active p-bass with poor quality pieces but it holds a special place on my heart since it was my 1st bass. So basically the wiring got torn apart and theres this 4 cables that got ripped off, i doesn´t seem like a hard wiring job, i just don´t really know where to rewire properly, so if you can help me out, i´d be grateful ehehe

    Thanks and good jams

    Well that was helpful that they labeled the controls "V", "T" and "B"....the fourth control is obviously the pickup select/blend pot...

    First thing I noticed is there's NO BATTERY. Preamps require battery power, and the output jack is used as a switch - the preamp is powered ON when a plug is inserted into the jack, and powered OFF when the plug (instrument cable or lead) is removed.

    Just based on a quick look, referencing picture #6, it appears the output wires were broken off the output jack. Most likely the white wire is the preamp output, it should be wired to the output jack's tip terminal.

    It also appears both pickups' ground (earth) wires are disconnected too.
