A quick search will bring up the wiring schematic. Its wired before the volume pot which I think is the problem you are describing. I don't know for sure though. I probably should have let more intelligent minds respond.

You should not need any other external buffers/boosts unless you are adding dirt. The onboard preamp drives the whole thing.
How would i know if if the bypass signal is not preamped

And, YES, all the info in in diagrams on Waldo's site. Scroll to the bottom for the diagram.

The preamp input wire should go to the pickup selector switch so its first after the 5 way. Then the preamp output goes to the bypass toggle. That way the preamp is never bypassed.
