Scarlet wrote:If you install OBEL you will need a buffer to deal with the long cable lengths (and to maintain tone consistency when you use your vol knob). You then have to figure out where in the guitar you can put the buffer & also the 9V battery that it will require. That might be the determining factor when choosing which axe to install the OBEL in. I don't use the trem on my Strat, so I put it all in the trem cavity. If your G&L strat body has a swimming pool rout, then that would be useful if you ever to decide to install a Super II or Dual Sound in the middle position like Jerry did.

It just sounds different from usual pedal or amp distortion. Maybe its a factor of the tone knob... there are certainly times when Jer sounds more "distorted" to me (a more typical distortion sound). I'll have to play around with that. Sadly I just picked up a Distortion+ [script back] on Ebay and the damn thing is DOA!
