Greetzzz,
If one exists, it's probably written in Korean!

We are working on a USA circuit for replacement as the Korean made BT copy costs less than the Pots in the US circuit. Older KSDs had a few minor problems with the circuits but the newer ones have improved. Still, we plan on making our own circuit to fit the Bass and offer it after market. We are just the designer for BG and they need to keep the price point where it is for now.

Actually these are BT copies made in Korea and not BT circuits as used on Smith Basses. Slight modifications were made throughout the last few years each time they were made. What is it that you need to fix? You haven't mentioned the problem if there is one. Contact the dealer you bought your Bass from for service. That's their job actually. I don't know if a schematic even exists. If it does, it's in Korean and used only for wiring in the Korean factory. Here when we have fixed a few for Brooklyn Gear, we just trace the wires and reconnect anything that looks wrong like a loose wire. If it's broken, you should just but a new unit in the Bass. That would come directly from Brooklyn Gear to your dealer or you depending on who contacts them.
