EB-3 Bass guitar wiring series #1 & #2

Ran out of memory here at google sites. I have a new store front at www.guitronix.com 
I also started a new blog at blogger 
guitar-bass-wiring-schematics-mods.blogspot.com/ Its mainly an open source information site for mods, diagrams, schematics and explanations for guitar and bass wiring. Eventually I will transfer all the files here over to the new blog. Thanks for visiting.


The EB-3 (1961 - 1979) bass was a 30.5" short scale bass. I believe gibson came up with this wiring to give it a bigger sound. I have wired both short and long scale basses with this schematic all with good results.
