QuoteWhich means that a 3rd party GK selector should better provide its own power supply which should be able to deliver the power for all attachable GK guitars?
QuoteA Switchcraft 112AX should do the trick,
Quote from: Elantric on March 29, 2017, 09:37:28 AM the only issue with a standard GK-KIT-GT3 installation on your guitar , the mag PU's become "loaded down" and dull sounding due to the additional input impedance of the parallel Mag PU connection on the internal GK Preamp board (see connector CN5 below) and your 1/4" output jack feeding your separate FX/Amp for the mag PU's = dull sound for the mag PU's even when used with only a 1/4 cable after a standard GK-KIT-GT3 installation

QuoteThat is one aspect where on the Fender "Roland Ready" / GC-1 Strat, (see schematic above) Fender deviated from the official Roland GK-KIT-GT3 installation method, by adding that special 1/4" switching output jack with the normally closed switch that feeds the GK preamp board. when you insert a 1/4" plug into the normal Mag PU Output jack, this switch opens, and you disconnect the Mag PU feed to the GK preamp board = better sounding mag PU's on your 1/4 output jack feed.
Quote from: Guido81 on January 06, 2024, 01:50:32 PMThanks Elantric. One last thing, the original installation manual says that the 2 pin cable labeled as "battery" is only necessary if the pickups need a battery, this applies then to active pickups only? fwiw I have 3 Wilkinsons, single coils.cheers
