Warwick Fortress one wiring issue

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone I have an issue with my bass

the Orange and Brown coloured wires are not connected to anything other than the preamp board

the result is when I use the push/pull pot it Fizzles to almost deathly quiet

i bought this bass and it already had this issue

can anyone please tell me where these wires should be connected to ?

If it is anything like my Streamers, the push-pull pot bypasses the active tone controls but does not switch the bass to fully passive, because the active MEC pickups require 9V at all times. A wire from each pickups runs to the preamp board to provide the power. If your bass turns quiet when you pull out the volume knob, I'm guessing it may cut the power to the pickups? 

What pickup and control configuration is in your Fortress? PJ with push-pull volume, pickup pan and two-band EQ?
