SB-1 pickup wiring help

I am looking for a little help with wiring a SB-1 pickup in a traditional P bass wire harness?
Here is the harness that will be used, I have found the G&L SB-1 diagram but still a little confused on how to wire?

Where did this circuit come from? It doesn't look like a G&L SB-1 or a Precision circuit.

the guy I got the bass from told me he had ordered it online from someplace not exactly sure where though?

You could use either a Precision circuit (which this does not appear to be) or a second generation SB-1 circuit. If the pots are 250K and the cap .047µF, you could re-wire this to be either a Precision or SB-1 circuit then connect or adapt the SB-1 pickup in. I'd recommend the SB-1 circuit because it's something we can follow.
