While working on a used bass, purchased by a client, the client sent one of the Fat Bass Tone pre-wired passive harnesses (vol, blend, tone 2 pup) to upgrade to the electronics on the bass. When I received the package I was not expecting much as I wire this set up often, and it is rather simple. I was immediately impressed with the clean and well thought out work the harness possessed. I was happy to see the pots were the quality brand I normally use (Noble) and that all solder joints were very clean and uniform. Even the Orange Drop cap was what I use in most of my work. I was struck with the thought that with this quality level, and the price, it would be a huge time/cost saving measure, if I was to use these harnesses, rather than sourcing the pots, caps, wire, and the time spent, wiring harnesses myself. Wiring is not one of my favorite aspects of building, and the Fat Bass Tone harness certainly is up to the standard that I would expect in very high end instruments. So I have recently chosen to purchase my harnesses from FBT, to achieve the consistency in the electronics package, I want for my production basses.

Harness is well built and worked perfect for my Active to Passive conversion. The new wiring sounds great.
Thank you so much.
Excellent service and products. As always great communication and support.
Great product, awesome customer service and I’ll definitely be doing business there again. These pickups saved this bass from being sold! Can’t say enough about how happy I am with how it turned out!!!
This is my second harness they are great. Quite an improvement over the stock ones.
