I'm not really sure what "other threat" tigerstrat is referring to...there are many. Did you check out the links posted in this thread? Here they are again.
Here you can get loads of information and the wireing diagrams etc. There is a wealth of information there, thanks to Waldo!
Here are two diagrams that are very clear and easy. They are the same (as far as the wireing goes) as the diagrams on Waldo's site. Just different format.
Pickup only wiring:
All other wiring:
What are the "snow flake details" your trying to find out about?
Thanks -- I've read each of those threads, and I'm familiar with waldo's site - I have one of his TPC1sm preamps waiting to go into my guitar. From the tone of the previous comments it just sounded like there was a primary OBEL thread that others had read, and I wanted to read that as well. I 'm just trying to absorb as much info as I begin.
My special snowflake details are that in addition to the UGB/OBEL circuit (with a bypass switch), I also want to incorporate a pair of original Bill Lawrence Q-Filters (they sound sort of like coil taps) in the pup tone circuits, and also be able to switch those in and out with a bypass switch or maybe a pull pot. Anyway, I don't want to hijack this thread. I'm working on a schematic of what I think my guitar's wiring will be, and I'll post it for comments and suggestions when I'm ready.
