Hey guys, thanks for recent advice on the gain pot wiring, works a treat. I also followed the wiring diagram to put in an out jack. That doesn't seem to work. I really just wanted it for headphones,…Continue
Hey guys. I've just finished my 2nd build. I put a p90 in. Sounded great in the dry run before finishing. So a couple of issues now i have it all back together. I earthed the strings via the tail…Continue

"Ok, I guess it would be a 1/8" headphone jack. But if you going 1/4" size then that has to be a stereo jack like the one in Paul's diagram. May be some reverse wiring you'll have to do. Keep us posted."
"Output speaker wire from amp to jack and then to speaker.

"Do you have some leads with alligator clips? These are the easiest way to test stuff before soldering. And they are cheap and last forever, if you don't have any you should get some.

Drop him an… Continue
