Got a new to me MiraX. Great guitar, nice SG style of rocker. Well first thing I notice at practice is I don't have a buffer in it. Turn down volume and muddddddddddddd. Damn you Waldo! Another order coming soon.

Bufferland. You can check out anytime you want, but you can never leave.

My PRS HB spruce needs one too, but I am not sure if it will play well with the joint piezo/mag setup

Exactly...every other guitar I play now is "Missing Something."

A couple of weeks back I played a killer special addition PRS. It clearly needed a middle PU...but really needed a TPC-1 before it could be evaluated in any way.

Every time I play with someone new they ask the same question...What pickups do you have in that Strat? Which leads to the statement "You're hearing 1/2 of a Dimarzio Super II, but that's not the Droid you're looking for." And then I put them to sleep with 16 other little which they respond..."Cool!" Then you bring on some distortion or boost or overdrive...and the conversation begins again. Almost nobody (except us whack-jobs) really wants to spend the money, but they sure like the outcome.

It's a curse.

Where's Waldo?
My heart was restless until I found Waldo :-)

I need to get an onboard buffer, blaster, or whatever for my 1st OBEL strat I just wired up, and it is rather obvious who to go to for it. Im not sure which version I would prefer yet...guess Ill start considering that once I get the set-up just exactly perfect. Although I wish I had included it from the beginning...twice as aggravating to go back into the wiring than it is to do it complete from the beginning, at least for me.
