Is it wired wrong? The tone pot MUST be connected to the signal BEFORE the buffer.

In the filter response the resonant peaking multiplies the voltage signal deliver from the PU as it passes by toward the buffer. I've heard that filter response gave Jerry the 'horn-like' quality in his tone. What exactly does 'horn-like' mean? Does this mean that when playing the highs (R=0ohms) that his notes punched through more, or did the resonant peaking really give his notes a feature that sounded like a horn.

Also, did his highs may get more sustain (say, during vibrato) because those frequencies fell within the resonant peaking? I suppose I liken this to if a frequency tone resonates, then that frequency tone is also being sustained.

The "Horn-Like" quality (to me) is literal. Almost French horn like, with just a touch of grit. Could be nearly brash and trumpet-like. Could be warmer & trombone like. But to my ear that French horn like quality was electrifying.
