Super Easy, Solder-less Install
All Obsidian® Pro-Wired Electronics are super easy to install, and allow for solder-less pickup changes with Obsidian® Plug, Play & Enjoy connectors. 

 

JAZZ BASS WIRING HARNESS

The Obsidian® for Jazz Bass wiring harness is a complete electronics upgrade for your Jazz bass with some Obsidian® mods for clarity at all volumes, and a smoother range of tone and volume control. 

These are built to be a direct fit for genuine Fender Jazz Bass, and Squier Jazz Bass with some adjustments. 

CRYSTAL CLEAR TONE

Retain clarity at lower volumes. To make your tone crystal clear at lower volumes we include an Obsidian® Custom spec treble bleed mod. This prevents tone 'muddiness' at low volumes by allowing high frequencies to pass along a separate path to your amp, rather than being stopped short by the increasing resistance at the volume control.

SMOOTH CONTROL

Even tone and volume control all the way from zero to ten. Obsidian® tone and volume controls incorporate carefully selected and custom-built components, as well as our own clever mods to smooth out the taper of your tone and volume controls, so you get a more even roll off all the way from zero to 10.

This Is my third one!

I have built three Jazz Bass variations over the last 12 years, my first one was a fretless, and it never really sounded right and the tone was off. I Finally got around to installing your Vintage JB controls and now it sounds great. I really love your product!! Keep up the great work!

Fender Jazz Bass Kit I assembled from factory Parts

I had previously used standard components on this jazz bass but had problems.(dead pickup) I thought that the harness (circuit Board solder less install) would be better. As well as sound better, It did!! Im Happy!
I did have some problems with the wire ends from the pickups, not wanting to stay connected but using a tweezer to hold the wire in place did the job!
Very well Made! My wife said so, She is a certified solder and assembly person with over 30 years experience!
She makes things that go in airplanes.

Rewarding - Squier VM jazz bass.

I had a bit of a problem with short leads from the neck pup I had to work around.
It felt like I could use a third hand sometimes trying to get the wire in its proper place. But…..
It was well worth it. The improvement in tone is phenomenal. Precise and clear.
This Squier VM never sounded so good.
Thanks.
