That is stunning work! Rueter's guitars appear to have a distinct authenticity.

Ibanez AR500. Mine is VERY hard to find as it's the first version with Super 80 pickups not Super 58 pickups. The trisound also have a phase reversal setting (key to Weir's sound!) which is only available on the AR500 with Super 80's (made in '79 and 1st half of '80).

I also like my Ibanez MC550. It's a very rare KOA model.

I'm rewiring my Schecter c1+ for Jerry tone (similar to Tiger, but without the effects loop).
It comes stock with 2 volume pots, 1 push pull tone/coil tap pot, and 3 way Les Paul style pickup selector toggle switch.
I am adding 1 CB1 guitar buffer/preamp.
I want to keep the configuration of 2 volume pots, 1 push pull tone/coil tap pot, and 3 way Les Paul style pickup selector toggle switch and add the CB1 guitar buffer/preamp.
Can it be done? Can you help me with a wiring diagram or tell me who can?

Here is my Godin. It's a good quality, afforable axe. It came with a Midi system but I removed it. Godins are easy to work on. I Hate the floating bridge though. Id like to eliminate it.
