QuoteThanks but it isn't a RR strat. Just a normal strat I've installed a GK-KIT-GT3 in
QuoteI don't get continuity between the 13-pin guitar output (pin 7 - normal guitar out) and the pickups; but I think there is an op-amp on the circuit board so this is normal, correct?

I have no idea where it was but I unplugged and plugged in a few things a few times and it went away.However it still didn't work; but you're post got me thinking and I suspect that something inside the guitar was shorting on the new shielding paint in the cavity. A few random bits of insulation stuck in there has appeared to solve it! I'll sort out a more permanent fix later.I didn't mention the shielding paint initially because I didn't think it was relevant. Obviously I was wrong
Quote from: DrD on April 02, 2023, 02:17:05 PMApologies to tack onto this thread, I am new to the forum and just fitted my first GK-3 to my stunt double Les Paul. No issues with fitting or with playing synth functions (position 3 for presets 1-48 and position 2 for presets 49 + 50 of the SY1000). There is no output for presets 49-50 from position 3 as expected. However, there is no guitar output from position 1. Tried all the obvious : exchanged jack/jack to GK-3 cable, tried two different Boss 13 pin cables with same result. The guitar output direct to a Boss Katana amp or Helix unit is fully functional. Is this a common problem or am I just unlucky. I have another 13 pin cable on order just in case !Thanks for your patience, I did not know where else to post this query.Chris
