Electrically challenged geezer building guitar #2

First one turned out well (main stage axe) and #2 will be looking at Waldo buffer and OBEL
It will have the Super II in the middle, and some other tones ... Area 58 in neck and a filtertron in the bridge.

Any suggestions for someone to hook up with?

Thanks, ALL

You can do it! As long as you can post photos, you have a lot of help right here.

Thanks, Gentlemen !

I figured there might be somebody reasonably close.
May be a little ways off, and was checking my options.
Most techs are not familiar with OBEL and buffer stuff.

Griz- If I did it you can do it. With the waldo diagrams, the wiring photos posted here:


and a good 45 watt soldering iron, it's do-able.
