    Thanks for the reply, that makes sense. I think that the wire might have been touching components on the preamp, when I removed the cover it was not under it, it was floating around. I just purchased the guitar... I removed the wire and the buzzing seems to have disappeared. Thanks again.

    It's difficult to tell from the picture, but that wire doesn't appear to be part of the original circuit. It looks like the wire was added so that the preamp ground could be tied to the preamp cover for additional shielding. If that was the case, the wire would be redundant.

    Does the hum diminish or change if the output jack is touched?

    You will need to use a stereo jack in order to get the preamp to turn on and off when plugged in. The Red wire is the signal lead, which wires to the Tip contact of the jack. The Black is the switch, which wires to the Ring contact on the jack. The shield wires to the Sleeve on the jack.

    You can probably get away with a regular electric-guitar-style stereo jack, but if you can find one, a shielded stereo jack would be advisable.

    I hope that helps.
    Yes it helps. Thank You very much for the reply! The only problem for now is that I'm using a ordinary mono-jack and it works just fine. The battery life on the other hand is too short.... My guess is that preamp does not switch off because the former owner had messed up with the wires and I have to re-solder the jack.
    Thanks again!

    Output jack

    Hello! Can anybody provide me with schematic over output jack? It's messed up on my Godin LR Baggs Acousticaster. It does have three wires soldered - black, red and shield. But I can use an usual jack instead of a stereo jack, as it meant to be in order to switch the batteries off when not used. Or am completely I wrong?

    Does any body knows a replacement solution. The preamp has been made in 1991.
    This Guitar is great and it's a pity for me to let it in it box.
    I am in France and nobody wants to touch this system.

    Thank ´s for any help

    As mentioned above, if you want to email me at [email protected], I'll see what I have available. We may have a replacement option, but if not, then I can advise you on sending the system in for inspection and possible repair.

Are there replacement boards available etc.. Thanks
