This started life as a special run MIM strat for GC H/S/S strat with two Tx specials and some kind of bucker, and a Clapton midboost circuit (that wasn't bad). It was routed with lots of space and a battery box.

It now has two Super Distortion 2 buckers and an SDS-1 in the bridge. Volume and tone pots. 3 way switches for the buckers (coil 1, both, coil 2) and a switch for throwing in the bridge pickup to whatever is selected. The latter lets you get neck and bridge, and all 3 pickups.

Also the missing input jack will be filled with a stereo jack that sends to pedals and gets a signal back, Admiral ordered a switchcraft jack that works that way, and if nothing is plugged in completes the circuit without the effects loop.

The other jack is also stereo, if nothing is plugged in it interrupts the power to the onboard buffer board.

This is a Jerryesque build, sounds great. If I were to MIDI it would be this one, still 50/50 on that. Its not as yellow as in the picture....Fookin iPhone, I need to find out how to take indoor pix with it that are worth a poop
