P-Bass pickups are split coil type of pickup. The two coils are wired in series, in most cases. However, you can wire them in parallel too, which will make the sound brighter, with less bass. The recommended wiring practice is to wire them in series so that the coils are out-of-phase with each other. This practice causes the pickup to become a hum-bucking (hum-canceling) pickup coil. The advantage in this practice, is to make it immune to outside electrical noise, which is a great plus for any bass. Of course, you can change the pickup wiring to single coil with these, by switching the wiring on one of the coils. Usually, the coils come with color coded wire connected to the coil terminals. Some coils use Red and Black, while others use White and Black.

A very important note here is to ground the bridge. If the bridge is not grounded your bass will almost always hum when you are not touching the strings. If you still have hum problems you should also have, or should install brass plates under the pickups, and have them connected to the common ground, usually on the back side of the volume and tone pots. Make sure that these plates do not short out the pickups. You can insulate these plates with electrical tape or some other insulator.
Frankly I can't think of an easier and more enjoyable project than building a fretless bass, and trust me when I tell you, it's easier than you think! With a little patience and attention to detail you can have a top of the line instrument for half the shelf price! If there is one thing I have learned over the years about building my own fretless basses is that once you take the responsibility of making your own axe, you become a master of your own sound. If your bass sounds and plays well or sounds and plays crappy it will be because you took the time to put the parts together and experiment! The best preliminary step to building is to go to one or more local music stores and just play basses. Make note of what you like and what you don't like about the sound, appearance and configuration of the basses, that way when you are ready to drop some cash on your parts you will know what to get. Another thing to keep in mind is that if you use crappy parts you will get a crappy sound. Always get the best grade woods and hardware you can afford, trust me it makes a HUGE difference!
