I hear ya, Bro'! And I agree in the sense that my Jerrycaster is also wired with a UGB and OBEL and that's the guitar I use almost always for Dead. I do tend to be flexible on these points, though, especially with others who for whatever reasons aren't fortunate enough to have Jerrycasters of their own but also love Jerry's tone.

Seriously, just as you ran your test comparing the buffer in your guitar versus before your effects, run the same test with a buffer before your effects (assuming the effects aren't themselves buffered and not true bypass, if so, you already have a buffer in your signal path) as compared to no buffer at all. You should hear a quite audible effect there, too.
Then compare the same exact guitar with the on board buffer disconnected and with a buffer before your effects plus slight adjustments to your rig's controls to compensate for any otherwise audible signal loss. My guess is any resulting differences would be tough to discern in a mix but this is just a guess and I'm open to hearing differently.
