Pickup wiring is one of those items that is worth knowing, especially if your bass has two pickups or split type pickups. Most pickups are wired in parallel configuration to the output jack. See the diagram below for two Jazz Bass pickups wired in parallel. This is normal configuration for Jazz bass and two pickup basses, like the G&L 2500.
Once I chose a color I coated the body with MinWax Pre-Stain. This water-based compound fills in the pours of uneven hard woods and allows for a more uniform and even stain across the whole body. Please make sure to always follow the directions on the can for best results! After drying I started to stain the body. Again, I can not stress how important it is to work in a safe and well ventilated area. While it maybe temping to do this in a more comfortable area, you don't want to expose yourself to fumes and suffer the side effects! I hung and finished the body in my apartment patio closet which was perfect for shelter and ventilation. Remember, if you find a coat is unacceptable you can always sand it away with a low grit sandpaper. However, it will require the same low to high sanding process, and if your not careful it the sanding can erode angles and curves.
With the help of the installed pickup springs turn a phillips head screw driver to move the pickup up or down. Moving the pickup higher or up towards the strings will yield a louder over all tone. Moving it away or down from the strings will result in a quieter volume. You want to strike a balance between the two which I find can be done by making your pickups like a ramp. You want to give the lower E and A strings plenty of room to vibrate so keep that end of the pickup just a bit lower, while making the D and G string side just a tad higher. It shouldn't be extreme but all the strings need to clear the pickup otherwise the case for the pickup itself will get scratched and the sound of your fingers hitting the top of the pickup will make an unwanted "thump" sound, that is unless you want that thump sound.
So you can very well calculate the total cost of procurement for the cable provided you measure out the routing distance in feet between your computer Ethernet port and the device to which you want to connect it to. Next item on your buying list are the two RJ-45 connectors unless you already have them with you. You also need to have a crimping device and a network cable connection tester. The wiring diagram you can easily download using the Internet. Two such diagrams are available. One uses the TIAEIA-568-A wiring standard and the other the TIAEIA-568-B wiring standard. Incidentally TIA stands for Telecommunications Industries Association and EIA stands for Electronic Industries Association.
