Pre-Wired

A huge range of wiring solutions for your Bass - ranging from DIY wiring kits using only the highest quality CTS pots, through to complete, drop in control plates and pickup bundles for that full upgrade.

Suitable for Jazz Bass®
The Fender® Jazz Bass® is instantly recognisable with its big metal control horn, just below the bridge - there's a few different styles out there, but the most common are the 3 and 4 holed versions, which we carry in Chrome, Gold, and Black, allowing you to really customise your bass.

We also carry the various sizes and shapes of pickup and bridge cover in here too.
Suitable for Precision Bass®
OK – so the Precision Bass® doesn’t really have a control plate as such – it’s all built into their pickguards, but for completeness sake, we thought it best to make this category on the site, just to include the bridge and pickup covers aswell as the pickguards. Keeps everything in the once place and makes it easy to see what fits what.
