Godin ‘Busker’

The complaint was ‘it eats batteries’. The ‘last guy’ modded the guitar to include a Tele pickup and created a ‘Y’ harness using the existing Tip-Ring-Sleeve jack. Only problem is acoustic preamps use the Ring and Sleeve to connect the battery to ground so after his mod the battery would be constantly on as soon as it’s installed.

To resolve the issue I added a power switch for the preamp and my master craftsman brother-in-law, Jay, turned a hardwood plug to hold it and also cover up the 1.25″ hole the last guy left where he installed the pot for the Tele pup.
