After some research and wanting to buy something available here as I didn’t want to wait I opted for an Obsidian wiring and pot upgrade for the P bass.
I eagerly parted with my $85 and waited on the mail.
Well it arrived today and I fitted it tonight. No soldering required is a bonus although I did end up cutting and soldering the original earth wire for convenience.
A quick test shows quite a difference in tone from a dull thud to quite a zing with the tone switch turned up full.
As for the volume it’s a big improvement. I now have a useable switch instead of what seemed like an on/off with the original wiring.
