Great feedback, thank you everyone.
I need to learn how to signal trace this guitar. I am pretty handly and figure i can do it with some guidance/instruction. Plus, I need to buy a circuit tracer I guess.
1) Is there some basic guidance available on how to perform a signal trace on this guitar (or similar guitar)?
2) What is a relatively inexpensive circuit tracer that would be adequate for my needs?
There is a great tutorial for building a signal tracer on the madbean website that he did years ago.
The germane bit is on pages 6-15. There are also a couple of sites that sell PCB projects for testing rigs. I got mine from JMK pedals and can report that it works fine. I think Fuzzdog has one. PedalPCB has one too but I think it's rather elaborate. But you don't really need to go that far. You just need the barebones and any guitar amp, and the tutorial covers those bases.
