Hey guys, I need your help.

I found an old marlin bass up in my attic, and i wanna do a restoration. Im good for all but wiring.

P/J pickups, 2 tones, master volume and a 3 pickup selector switch. The only problem is that i need to know a few things before i start destr... i mean restoring it.


1. How the **** do I wire this thing?
2. What pots do you sudgest - 250 or 500?


Thankyou, kind UGers

250k pots.

what do you mean three pickup selector? Do you have three pickups & want to wire it like a strat, or have two pickups and want a 3-way switch like a tele?


If it's two pups as I suspect, I'd start off wiring like this tele:

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's pretty much a case of using common sense to combine these two wiring diagrams. Pups-->volumes-->switch-->tone-->output.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the wiring diagrams, but i want 2 tones and a master volume

Could i wire it up like a les paul, but wire both pickups to a single vollume?
