Rewiring A Warlock

Since Ostrich Guitar Labs has an international reputation in the field of quality drunk soldering, we’re constantly being commissioned for all types of repair jobs. This week we tackle a BC Rich Warlock aka THE metal bass.

The problem was the wiring, and by wiring, I’m talking about this mess:
BC Rich Warlock volume pot wiring

I don’t even know where to begin. Basically the volume pot was completely BURIED in dried glue. The wires themselves wrapped up in a crazy spiral. Who does that? Really.

Anyway, it’s a very simple circuit so I’ll keep this post completely uninformative. 1 single volume, one tone and two pickups. The hardest part was scraping out the glue. I had to use knives, pliers and a fucking spoon, but I did it. Nice and clean.

The working circuit looks like this:
