Prewired Precision Bass Pickguard with DiMarzio P Bass Pickups Prewired Precision Bass Pickguard with DiMarzio Split P Bass Pickup
DiMarzio offers a pre-wired pbass pickguard with solderless pickup installation.
The prewired pickguards are supposedly "direct drop-in replacements" with no soldering or assembly required. Sounds real easy right? Sounds like DiMarzio has
it all figured out right? Guess again . . .

What if you have a body without an open control area connected to the pickup cavity like a majority of aftermarket bodies come~? And what if the harness components they offer aren't up to par with your standards or mine, as in China-made pots~?
I build my harnesses with CTS pots, a Switchcraft Jack, an Orange Drop Capacitor, and the finest hookup wire available on the market today: WBE PTFE High Temp Teflon Silver Plated Stranded Copper Wire. I also make it with gold male and female solderless connectors. I solder each connector to the wire and apply shrink tube. All you will need to do is slip a piece of the provided shrink tube over the wire, plug the gold connector togethers and shrink the tubing. I even provide copper foil on the back side of the pickguard. And then I guarantee your harness for as long as you own it~!

Here's what you get: DiMarzio DP122 P Bass P'up ($69.95). CTS 250KA solid shaft Pots ($9.90). Switchcraft Jack ($2.25). Orange Drop Cap ($1.95). WBE PTFE Wire ($4.95). Copper Foil ($3.95).
The Pickguard shown is 3-ply white-black-white but you can also choose black-white-black ($20.00)
If you want a higher priced pickguard we can discuss your choice. It shouldn't be a problem.
Top it off with a couple of dome top or barrel knobs with set screws ($10.00) and let's add it up.
The labor charge for soldering up a typical control harness is based upon an hourly shop rate of $50.00
