I have searched through the forums and there is a ton of info on OBEL in fact there si so much I really don't knwo where to start. So with that being said I am asking for help from you all. I am looking to put an OBEL system into my guitar. I was wondering if you guys can help me with where to find the parts and where to find diagrams on how to instal and wire up the OBEL.

Just so you know I usign the following guitar : http://beta.gbase.com/gear/greenman-guitars-greenman-lola-jerry-garci-20
I am removign the Sustaniac Pickup and putting another DiMarzzio in and removing the second 5-way switch and going to put the OBEL jack there. might have to put some toggle switches in it as well.

I have already added an inlay on the tailsection of the guitar I wasn't able to upload the photo because the forum is telling me "Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached" So here is my photo on FB https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/photo.php?fbid=10200864914424189&set=pb.1804298807.-2207520000.1393793924.&type=3&theater

There is a simple explanation and diagram of the OBEL (On Board Effects Loop) here: http://guitarwiring.blogspot.com/search ... r%20wiring

I recommend doing the Tiger wiring with the OBEL and buffer is shown here: http://www.wald-electronics.com/tiger.html
