    I've got two Guild Thunderstar amps which i like a lot. Neither of them came with a footswitch for the reverb/tremolo. I bought a genuine Guild footswitch but i don't know how to wire it. There's a photo attached to this post. Maybe somebody could give me a clue? Thanks, in advance.

    Take care,

    I looked at a couple Thunderstar schematics and it appears they are wired differently.

    I would borrow a simple Fender footswitch and try it on your amp to see if it works. If so, simply copy it.

    First guess is that if your Rev/Trem uses a single jack, you need to install a stereo jack. One wire from the same side of each switch to the ground. One of the remaining two to the tip, the other to the ring.
