Has there ever been an agreed upon way to install the buffer into a Strat? Battery placement? Also, what could I expect someone to charge me to install this? Thanks

i would have to say that blocking the trem and removing the springs makes the space remaining as the ideal spot in a strat.

check out mattsons strat trem cavity.

but there are other clever ways to go about this and both will fit under the pickguard if planned out properly. the only thing with the battery in there is the need to change it out from time to time.

as for pricing that can probably be better answered by some here who have to get this work done.

How about a Les Paul? Is there any way this will fit w/ the battery without hacking up my baby?

if they can fit the bigger jangletone and battery in a les paul(warren haynes 58 reissue), i am sure the TPC1 and battery will fit just fine. :smile:

Nice Pic. Now you have me interseted..
Right now i just run a volume pedal after my FX and leave my guitar vol dimed. and this works great.
Im also using a GCX . My chain goes Guit> RMC Wah> GCX Buffered in> FX> Vol> Etc...
So the TPC would essentially strengthen the signal from the guitar to the GCX where it hits its first buffer
(unless the wah is on)right? Would it then be recommended to run the unbufferd input on the GCX if using a TPC?
Or does it matter?

Also, any tips and/or pics of how to mount the TPC like warrens jangletone?

Thanks in advance.. Look forward to my purchase!

In my strat, the TPC-1 is under my pickguard, and the battery is in the jack cavity: You just flip the jackplate over, reverse the TRS jack, and voila: 9v battery fits down there with about a millimeter to spare

correct, since you run the wah before the GCX, when the wah is on, it will be providing the last active circuit driving the chain when nothing is on in the GCX. turn something on in the GCX and it becomes the line driving signal to the amp.

you would want to use the NON buffered input of the GCX once you go with an onboard buffer. that is kinda of the whole reason for true bypassing all the effects in the GCX. you only need one, and more then one can/will degrade the signal.

i don't see any screws or plastic standoffs, so they either glued it down, or used some of that 3m cushioned double sided tape. that's actually what is holding Mattson's TPC in place in the strat pictured in this thread.

HTH!
