just acquired a fender precision bass.
the pickup is not attached. i'm not familiar with how pickups work, but wonder if it's fixable.
it's essentially the four magnets surrounded by thin wrapped copper wire.
this has become detached from the plastic thing.
the plastic thing has two wires soldered to it, so i'm assuming that somehow the copper wiring is supposed to connect to these wires. there must be a piece missing?
or are there wires missing?

i intend to get a new pickup to replace it but until i can borrow a soldering iron i need a quick fix.

also, does anyone know where i can find a replacement pickup? it's the single pickup model.

advice would be much appreciated -- or can anyone point me to a site that contains more information?
