Cool, I'll give it a try. It's a combo amp so no worries about not having a speaker load attached (I will keep the internal speakers plugged in at all times).

Using my guitar amp as a pre-amp for recording?

I'm not sure if this goes in the recording forum or in the gear and accessories forum, but I figured I'd start here. I recently picked up a Mesa Boogie Maverick and it has a slave jack on the back...

Ok, that's not a problem. I might put in a 3-way switch and use a push-pull for series / parallel. I'm not in a rush to do it, I was just curious.

Its funny you mention it, I was thinking of doing that. My 2 and 4 positions aren't that useful now. And I really don't need those quack tones because I have a Strat. So I was wondering... is there a...

UPDATE: Got it all wired up. I had to flip the wires for the middle pickup after all, but it wasn't a big deal. The Strat single coil actually compliments the Invaders really well (surprisingly). I...

I don't mind if it's not noiseless, but I want to avoid the thin out-of-phase tones. I'll find out as soon as it's installed, and it's easy enough to flip the wires around. I just wondered if anybody...
