well i have an old guitar that i need help in re-wiring. but this kind of re-wiring is insane. i have no idea what goes where lol. just look at this stuff.









im not 100% sure. but if somebody could help me find a schematic for this itd be great. its a carvin dc200 with active electronics. and it has 2 input jacks lol.

i think this one might work

Come here, boys. I have something for you...



Only an idiot would race to rip out the old before making a reasonable effort to understand and repair it. It very well might be the final decision is to gut this. But a decision like that is not made lightly.

why does it need rewiring? what's wrong with the way it is right now?

The pics and the diagrams appear the same, but it's not possible to accurately trace the wires in the drawing. You'll need to do that in-person.

I don't think it's active electronics. Does it use a battery?

the diagram you linked to has a lot of desireable features. If you want them, it wouldn't be too hard to keep what you have and wire new pickups into the existing circuit. If not, just do what they said an rip it all out and start over. Your call.

If yours doesn't use a battery, it doesn't have active electronics. It's as simple as that.
