i am changing pickups in a bass, but i dont have any solder
can i reuse the solder in the pots?

also my pup diagram says 250 pots, but the bass seems to have 500, should i change the pots also?

That's the best idea if you want solder. If you take it from somewhere else in the bass, there won't be enough to go round.

cut the original wire halfway down, strip it down and twist the exposed old wire around the new pickup wire, electrical tape it together, problem solved (but you should still go get solder asap)

i think that will work anyway...won't it?

just get some solder. if you REALLY care for your bass you wont hisitate or cut corners. you only get out of your instrument what you put in so it is worth it to take your time and get some damn solder...... seriously it's at practicly any hardware store .. even walmart!!!
