Thunder 2 bass wiring mod?

Post by Clive Shakedown on Thu Jul 14, 2016 4:26 pm

Hello people! I need a bit of wiring advice please, I have a thunder 2 bass, an 81 I think, (with the 2 humbuckers)  I would like to keep the pick ups, but wire them to 3 new pots, (2 volumes and 1 tone) much the same as a fender jazz. My question is, which of the 4 pick up wires do I need?  and what do I do with the other 2? 
I have never used the active circuit on any of my guitars so I wont miss it, also I don't need any phase or dual tone switches.
Have looked all over the net for the answer but to no avail. Thanks for any help you can give.

Use the white to earth/common with the shield and the blue(or red) as live, join the green and red(or blue) can't remember off the top of my head. Wire as a Jazz bass.
