    Hey Bob, that's not something we have in stock anymore. If it's still available anywhere, it will be hard to find.

    I can do some digging around and see if we have anything, but I'm pretty sure we don't have anything for the Multiac Duet anymore. That system wasn't in production as long as some of the other systems we made for Godin.

    Would you be able to send me a picture or two of the electronics you have? You can email me at [email protected], and I will see what I can find.

    Hey Tony,
    Thanks for posting.

    That preamp has been out of regular production for over two decades, so finding a replacement in decent shape is a tall order. If you want to keep the guitar going, there are a few ways to do that without the original preamp.

    The first option is to use the LB Preamp. The LB Preamp is an endpin preamp that will work with the LB6 pickup in the guitar. It has a 9v battery and single thumbwheel volume control. The volume control can be changed out with a traditional/larger pot or even a volume and tone setup.

    The other option is to wire the LB6 directly to the output jack to be used with an external preamp. This option does require an external preamp but does not require any batteries on the guitar.

    Another option is to remove the LB6 completely and install a completely new system like the Element VTC. I installed the VTC in my Godin bass, and I added traditional volume and tone pots into the top for easy access. The VTC works great for this kind of setup and it's still very full sounding.

    I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    I have a very old acousticaster and the pre amp is dead , finished, the funeral was last week, as the guitar is excellent and I want to keep it is there any chance anyone has the old preamp . Or is there an alternative to put electrics back into my lovely old acousticaster.

    Thank you Caleb, I'm gonna look for another cause of the trouble (out volume really too low).

    Well, I was wrong. I was able to find an older version that shows a 510k resistor (hand drawn) in the schematic. So that appears to be accurate to the modified design.

    Thank you, I need to know the value of the right resistor, it's clearly solded between out signal (red wire unsold middle of grey and brown on the pic) and shield. Mine is 500KOhms. Best regards. Bob.

    Ok,
    I understand now. I thought you were referring to the parts that are highlighted in the picture.

    The resistors on the back of the PCB are official, but there shouldn't be anything between the signal and ground leads of the output jack. If something was added there, it's likely affecting the output level of the system.

    Thank you, but on the pic, (which is not mine) I have exactly the 2 same resistors added, and in my case the right one is 500KOhms, and wired as a divisor bridge, I think that output level is too low, that's why I asked you if this was genuine. Best regards. Bob.

    Here's a diagram that should help you with your connections. The output wire didn't have a resistor on it from the factory, so that may have been added later by a previous owner. The battery connections are on the upper left side.

    I hope this helps.
