Spectrum LX Bass wiring diagram

Post by deanodley on Fri Apr 28, 2017 10:24 am

Hello Everyone - I've just bought a Spectrum LX bass on-line. It's in transit, so I don't have it yet but the seller has told me that the "kill switch" is broken. According to what I've read his bass should have a phase reversal and a coil split switch in addition to the pickup selector. This makes me wonder if the guitar still has its stock wiring. Anyway, what I'm looking for is the wiring diagram for this bass - I've found nothing on-line so I though maybe someone on here might have the necessary info. I would greatly appreciate any help you could give me!
Thanks in advance,
Dean

Update from the seller: If your looking at the bass, it's the upper switch that's broken, the lower switch runs active/passive, the volume is also a pull coil tap... The pick-up selector is between the bridge and rotary controls.

You're not going to know exactly what's what until you have it in your hands, eh! I was hoping that the LX would have the same circuitry as the GT but it looks like the LX has active tone controls, and as you say, mini switches for coil split and phase reverse whereas the GT just has a pull pot for phase. 
It shouldn't require too much fettling to get it back to OEM, if that's what you're after, though??

Please start a new thread to avoid confusion Dean especially when future folks are searching for something specific. Thanks!
