In Reply to: precision bass wiring/broken pickup posted by Carl on December 09, 2002 at 04:57:33:
I don't know how to fix pick-ups.
As far as new ones go check out www.musiciansfriend.com/. Even if you don't buy from them, their site is great for shopping around.
You might not even need a soldering gun. Years ago I bought active p-bass pickups that came completely wired. I just popped them in the bass and was ready to go.
: 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?
