    Prewired Jazz Bass Control Plate FEATURES:

    Based on our best-selling Prewired Telecaster Control Plates and Prewired Pickguards, we decided to give the bass players some prewired love! Introducing the brand-new Prewired Jazz Bass Control Plate by Fralin Pickups: USA-Made quality, CTS® Pots, the rock-solid Switchcraft Output Jack, all beautifully wired and ready to install in a few minutes.

    • USA-Made control plate, with a Chrome finish
    • CTS® Solid Shaft 250K or 500K pots for unbeatable durability
    • Standard Jazz Bass wiring, with independent Neck and Bridge volumes and a Master Tone control
    • Wide assortment of Tone Caps available to fine-tune your tone
    • Incredibly simple installation involves soldering only 4 wires

     

     

    POT VALUE

    Choose 250K Pots if you want the standard operation. This is what comes standard on most Jazz Basses. If you have dark-sounding pickups, or, you want to achieve a “crispier” tone, go with 500K pots.

     

    INSTALLATION

    Installation is incredibly simple. All you need to do is solder the pickup’s hot wires to the respective Volume Pot inputs, and solder the pickup’s ground wires to the casing of the volume pot. See below:

    FAQs

    • How long will my Control Plate take? Please give us 7-10 business days to build and assemble your Control Plate. All orders are made to order and wired by hand.
    • Can you wire it up without the Chrome Plate? As it turns out, No. If this matters to you, you can pull out all the wiring once you receive it to put it in your Control Plate. It’s just too time-consuming and unsafe to ship without a solid control plate holding everything together.
    • Can I return my Control Plate? No. Since these are so custom and made to order, all Jazz Bass Control Plate sales are final, and not available for exchange or return.
    • What if I don’t see what I want? Please use the “Notes” field on the checkout screen to type in any special requests. Use this field to describe how you want it wired as well if you wish to have anything customized. Please note that we can’t accommodate all requests.

    3 Questions about Prewired Jazz Bass Control Plate

    1. Just received my pre-wired J Bass control plate. 2 questions: 1. Does the output Jack need to be grounded? 2. Where can I connect the ground from the bridge? Thanks

      1. Hey Mike,

        1.) The output jack does not need to be grounded as it is connected to the plate, which connects all metal. 2.) I would wire the ground from the bridge to the casing of the volume pot.

    2. Hi. Any chance you make this plate but in a Volume / Balance / Tone configuration? Thank you.

      1. Hey Guillermo, as it turns out, not at this time. We’re working towards that option in the future!

    3. Will the neck plate and 5 string jazz pick ups fit a squire classic vibe. The all maple 70’s black block inlay one.

      1. Hey Tony, I don’t foresee any issues, but please make sure to check the dimensions against yours here: 5-String Jazz Bass Dimensions & Control Plate Dimensions

      Nice addition to a cheap bass

      I got this to replace the original controls which were acting a little flaky and it was a perfect fit, looked great, and was easy to wire in. There was nothing to complain about here.

      Excellent

      This is an excellent vintage wired plate. I purchased it when I bought some upgraded Jazz pickups for a USA Geddy Lee because I wanted to keep the original parts intact in case I reverted the mod. Now that I have been using this along with a new set of Fralin Jazz Split Coil P/U’s (5% overwind on the neck), I have to say WOW. Just plain WOW. Fralin is the go-to brand for pickups. Took me a few years to finally pull the trigger on my first set, but I’ve since upgraded my PJ with a set as well. Since this review is specifically supposed to be for the Prewired Jazz Control Plate, a few comments- First it fits perfectly, looks original and is tidy. The wiring is clean, professional solder joints, and super (I mean SUPER) easy to install. The pigtails for soldering the pickups are well marked with plenty of “tail left in the pig” to facilitate easy soldering. Highly recommend this product. Cannot ever go wrong with Lindy’s products, as I am finding out. And as far as the tone goes- just stand by because it is absolutely exactly what the doctor ordered. Thanks, guys! John
