Continue turning the tuner until the string holds tension and rests in the nut. Repeat the process, bringing each string up to tune. Remember that new strings need some time to stretch and will go out of tune for the next few hours. But worry not they will eventually settle. The neck of your bass is the strongest of all the parts! It consists of a metal rod embedded under the fingerboard called a Truss Rod. The truss rod turns with an allen wrench either clockwise or counter-clockwise to counteract the tension applied to the neck by the strings. This tension (or lack there of) will either add or take away curve to the neck allowing the strings to clear all parts of the fingerboard vibrate freely and allow the plucked note to sound. An adjustment to either the heel of the neck or at the top in front of the nut will allow you to turn the trus rod and add or take away tension or curve to the neck.
Choosing the best bass guitar pickup will largely depend on the type of guitar you have. However, most of these pickups are either magnetic or piezoelectric types. Magnetic types have coils that convert string vibrations into electronic signals. Piezoelectric bass guitar pickups have crystals that generate electrical current from the vibrations. There are categories of bass guitar pickups too which also determine the kind of output you will get from your guitar. They are usually differentiated by their design. For example, J Pickups are usually wired opposite each other to significantly reduce the hum generated when they pick up stray radio frequencies. There is also the original P Pickup of the 1970s which is made of two halves of a single coil pickup. Similar to J Pickups, the P Pickup is also wired in opposing directions to minimize the hum.
This is why you want to make sure that you have a diagram that you can use, but where do you get them from? There are a number of sites online that offer you schematics for making up these types of cables, as said before it is not that hard, but you will want to make sure that you follow the instructions perfectly if you are doing to have a fast connection to use in your home or office. You will find that the cables have a very distinct color code to it. There are many different colors used in Ethernet wiring, but most of the time the common colors are used all over the world. If you are going to find the right setting for this type of thing you will want to make sure that you spend a little time online.
It does not matter if you play an acoustic or electric bass if your bass guitar pickups are in a poor shape or design. You will simply not achieve that dynamic full bass sound every guitarist dreams of. The bass guitar pickup is such a crucial piece of equipment that without it your bass would be impossible to hear in a band. Needless to say, the Bass Guitar is for most bands, the backbone of it's sound.
