T3Plus Upgrade Wiring
This Black acrylic Jazz Bass Upgrade is for 3-pickup coil instruments. It gives you 35 pickup tones.
Now you can Soup Up your Jazz Bass to get more pickup tone power and also increase your creativity and versatility with dozens of additional fresh new pickup tones.
Your stock bass is designed to give you a modest and inadequate 3 pickup tones. Don't you think it's worth a few dollars more to get a Grand Canyon Wide range of 35 Blues, Jazz, Metal, Surf, Country plus the dozens of new and different pickup tones your stock bass simply cannot produce?
This EZ Install high performance upgrade gives you the ultimate in performance at the lowest cost.

"After installing this upgrade in my bass, I stayed up all night playing it." Alvin Sears
"I am SO pleased with the upgrade. The standard 3-way switch is an 8-pack of Crayolas when compared to your upgrade which is the 98-pack with built in sharpener. I now have colors I didn't even know I wanted. Do I need EACH of the additional tones? No, of course not; but there are many new tones which, now that I have heard them, I cannot live without. The next time I buy a bass, your products will be that instrument's first upgrade!" Branden Garner

This upgrade uses our T3Plus-Switch.
There are two "groups" of switches: (SW4, SW5, SW6) -and- (SW1, SW2, SW3)
The first group of switches (SW1, SW2 and SW3) are ON-OFF-ON switches used to turn an individual pickup coil Off and On. The middle position of each switch is Off. The down position turns the pickup On (in normal-phase) and the Up position turns the pickup on (in reverse-phase).
(coil-1 is the south-most coil, coil-2 is the middle coil, coil-3 is the north-most coil)
SW1 controls pickup coil-1
SW2 controls pickup coil-2
SW3 controls pickup coil-3
When you use these three switches (with SW4, SW5, SW6 all in the Down position), you get 13 different pickup tones from the combinations of three pickup coils being Off or On (either in normal-phase or in reverse-phase). It is also due to the combination of the pickup coils being in a Parallel circuit.
The second group of switches (SW4, SW5 and SW6) are ON-ON switches are used to put select pickups into a Series circuit.
Two things to remember when using this second group of switches:
First, putting two or three pickup coils in Series circuit creates a "Compound" (i.e., Humbucker) pickup that gives you about 8 to 15 percent More output (think Heavy Metal/Jazz tone).
Second, because ALL the pickup coils are in a Series circuit, those coils MUST be On (either in normal-phase or reverse-phase). Any non-Series circuit pickup coil can be either Off or On (either in normal-phase or reverse-phase).
Using the Second Group of Switches
Starting with switches SW4, SW5 and SW6 in the Down position;
Put switch SW4 in the Up position and coil-1 plus coil-2 are in a Series circuit. You MUST turn On both coils using switches SW1 and SW2 (either in normal-phase or reverse-phase) to hear any sound. In this example, pickup coil-3 (controlled by SW3) can be either Off or On (in normal-phase or reverse-phase).
Put switch SW5 in the Up position and coil-1 plus coil-3 are in a Series circuit. You MUST turn On both coils using switches SW1 and SW3 (either in normal-phase or reverse-phase) to hear any sound. In this example, pickup coil-2 (controlled by SW2) can be either Off or On (in normal-phase or reverse-phase).
Put switch SW6 in the Up position and coil-2 plus coil-3 are in a Series circuit. You MUST turn On both coils using switches SW2 and SW3 (either in normal-phase or reverse-phase) to hear any sound. In this example, pickup coil-1 (controlled by SW1) can be either Off or On (in normal-phase or reverse-phase).
Put both switches SW4 and SW6 into the Up position and all three pickup coils are in a Series circuit. You MUST turn On ALL of the pickups using switches SW1, SW2 and SW3 (either in normal-phase or reverse-phase) to hear any sound. This gives you an incredible overdriven bass sound in spades.
You get 35 pickup tones with this upgrade. < Less
