Premium Wiring Kit for Jazz Bass

About This Item

All of the wire and components you need to wire a 2-pickup guitar or bass.

Jazz Basses® don't use a selector switch to control what pickup is active, they use two volume controls that allow you to blend the pickups together. Here's what you need for wiring those pickups into your J-bass! All the parts, plus a diagram to show you how.

The premium kit features cloth-covered push-back wire—the right wire for Fender and vintage-style guitar circuitry. The pots in this kit are upgraded to CTS brand for longer life and a smoother, more accurate response.

This setup can be used for basses and guitars, or you can add a selector switch (sold separately) for added flexibility.

    Wiring kit for Jazz Bass includes
  • Output jack
  • 250K CTS control pots (3)
  • .047uF Orange Drop capacitor
  • Non-shielded cloth-insulated push-back circuit wire: 22 AWG, white, 12" long
  • Non-shielded cloth-insulated push-back circuit wire: 22AWG, black, 24" long
  • Shielded braided push-back circuit wire: 22 AWG, 12" long
  • Wiring diagram

Great Kit.. Wrong Size

By

Verified Buyer


I have a Squier Vintage Modified PJ bass and the pots are too big to fit the pocket cavity for the electronics. I'll have to find someone to route it out a bit so it can fit. The two volumes fit but the area that the tone sits in is too narrow.

Just what I needed

My MIM Fender Jazz Bass was crackling and popping, and the neck pickup volume would not work at all. Buying this kit was easier than sourcing parts separately. Plenty of wire to work with. I used the images of the pre-soldered kits as a guideline for assembly. The bass sounds much better now. The pots are smooth. I did have to add nuts from the old pots to adjust the height of the pots on the plate so the knobs wouldn't be way above the plate. I'm very happy with the results!

Worked great!

I purchased this for a short-scale Ibanez PJ Bass to upgrade the questionable factory pots. The factory pots were 500Ks with a .047 cap. I did have to enlarge the mounting holes slightly and could not use the full washer stack but there was just enough room for these pots even thought they are larger than the stock ones. Definitely an improvement.

Perfect Wiring Kit Choice

By

I purchased this wiring kit for a Yamaha Bass. Other than relieving the tone pot cavity, the installation was a cinch. Made a night and day difference in the quietness and quality of sound for my bass. Very good quality parts!

Easy to Wire!

Purchased this kit to replace the miniature pots and inferior output jack on a Jay Turser Jazz Bass. Needed to drill out the plate to 3/8" to accommodate the CTS pots as noted on the website. The wiring instructions were clear and lots of wire was provided! Easy upgrade!

Order arrived earlier than expected and they have great customer service! This kit is perfect for wiring up your jazz bass! I bought a push pull pot and replaced one of the standard pots with that for the series/parallel mod, but this kit gets you everything you need!!
