Lets face it, the 73-75 Wolf tone was insane. I personally think its my favorit tone. I have a nice strat that currently has Custom Shop 54's and a Fishman powerbridge (piezo). I'm going to be making some changes to help get it closer to that 73 Wolf tone.
I found the following info on the 73 Wolf on Waldo's amazing website.
"Stock Fender Single Coils, Stock Strat Wiring with Military Spec'd Allen Bradley Potentiometers and Ceramic Capacitors, Military Spec'd "Raytheon" Knobs, and Onboard Alembic Blaster Preamp w/On-Off Switch(post volume control) "
Do I go with the Blaster or do I go with Waldo's buffer? There will not be an OBEL on the guitar. Do the military spec'd parts contribute to the tone or is it a longevity move?
