One is green and one is blue. This is the volume pot input in this case. It should be a quick fix. If you can, practice on a few pieces of scrap wire about the same size as the smaller black and white inner wires first before modifying your actual cables. This one: Could you pleeeeease help me with a complete wiring diagram or a pic? Not to mention, the heat shrink tubing will stay on until you cut it off, where as the tape has a tendency to peel off and become a mess. Thanks again, I couldn't have done it without your help. I cannot see where I am making a mistake.
I got this far and tested both pickups - I get sound, but it is very weak. In particular the song Would. Here's how to do it: -First, take one of the spare connector cables, and cut the black connector piece off at the very edge of the connector piece itself. If not, you still have it incorrect. Was worth a shot in trying anyway. With this setup I'm pretty sure you're going to have to go dual volumes feeding the rest of the circuit.
In other words, I do not understand what I am doing wrong. I just would need to know how to wire the bridge pickup, as it has 7 pins on the underside unlike the neck pickup, which has the standard 3 pins. Much, much more quiet than when I normally practice. Connect the guitar to your amplifier, turn it on and play a few notes to make sure the pickup is working and not producing loud buzzing. Then your volume pot output will be the top set of pins, which will then go to the switch's pickup inputs. If this is the case, you may want to switch the volumes so that the bridge volume is closest to your hand and the neck volume is the one closest to the jack and more out of the way.
If you need any other help, just ask! Although this should work, I didn't suggest this setup as: 1. Take the instrument to a music shop and have a technician fix it for you. Replacing the old pickups in your guitar can be completed in a few minutes with the right tools. However, I fear that they are dead. I worry that putting this pickup in a bass would result in a bass with pretty much no output.
Still, it would seem that you should still be able to make it work. I've also tried e-mailing Spector but they haven't gotten back to me in over two weeks or so. However, I fear that they are dead. Will be talkin to ya again soon! I thought I understood electronics. If you are wiring an active pickup in a guitar without active electronics you may need to carve out a battery compartment in the body of your guitar or install a battery holder in the electronics compartment if there is room. Improperly wired active electronics could cause damage to your guitar's circuitry or even electrical shock.
. The switch output will get wired directly to the jack, and the battery connections should be self explanitory. Right now you have the cart before the horse. Just need to know where to put the blue and green wires. You will also want to cover the spliced area of the now longer cable with heat shrink tubing as well to make sure nothing makes contact with the inner wires and to make sure that whole area of the cable is covered and insulated again. I have spent most of Thursday and Friday on this and I am close to spontaneous combustion.
I am hoping that someone can help me. It does, however, need a 9 volt to power the pickups if that's any help. If not, a couple of pots shouldn't be that much. As always though, I'm no expert It just looks like it's all designed to work together as a package. This has been keeping me awake at night. If you look closely at the picture, you will see where the 2 smaller black and white wires start to go into the thicker cable.
Get a custom drawn guitar or bass wiring diagram designed to your specifications for any type of pickups, switching and controls and options. What I want: 2-volume no tone , so that in the middle position I can adjust the volume of each pick up independently. I truly do not see why this would not work. I have followed the wiring as detailed in Diagram 2B. This is a friends bass that I am rewiring with new pots and output jack, and I really want to get rid of this thing. Is this what is happening? Just installed a set of these on my Spector 6. If you are at all unsure of how to wire your pickup or are having trouble getting the pickup to produce a clean sound, consult your local guitar technician.
