These are custom wired at Bassmods
We shrunk down all the wiring, so you are not trying to stuff a bird's nest in the cavity.
We of course have made thousands of basses with these style plates, so we know how important having
short wires are, to avoid problems.

We added a battery meter Light for extra insurance. 
With a standard charge on the battery, it illuminates for about 3 seconds when the guitar cable is first plugged into the Bass jack; the circuit powers up and measures the guitar battery voltage, then sends a pulsed intensity pattern to the LED which indicates the battery voltage.

If the battery voltage is too low the LED flashes quickly on and off for 5 seconds. You will want to change your battery before your next playing session. If this is the first time you got the warning and you have been playing the instrument on a regular basis, there is no need for concern - you have enough power to play out your gig 

The Trickfish Internal Pre Amp (IPA) is a high performance, low noise internal bass preamp system built upon two ideas – superior tonal flexibility and effortless installation. Sharing many of the sonic signatures found in our Flexcore line of preamps, the IPA delivers the same musical and transparent character as its older sibling. The shelving bass and treble controls and selectable frequency points for bass, midrange, and treble offer the ultimate in tone shaping capabilities.

Our simple plug connections allow for the addition of 2 or 3 bands of active EQ to your instrument without the need to solder. All EQ pots, toggle switches, and the output jack are prewired for an easy installation and the solderless screw terminals make input connections painless. The IPA’s small size (1.9” x 1.2”) circuit board is preinstalled with Velcro and was designed to fit virtually any bass.
