I've got an old Fender Studio Lead that I've been fixing up. I discovered last night (after finally getting sound out of it), that the clean channel is well... messed up. It feedbacks very badly as soon as you change the channel. The channel switch doesn't work, but the footswitch works. My question is, since the board with the first channel is connected to the main board by a ribbon cord, can I just disconnect the first channel without affect the signal? Thanks!

(Reread my post) I left out that it switches occasionally, and the amp's cutting out still every now and then. If I can take a chunk of curcuitry out of the equation, it would help.

Try to find a schematic for it and find out if, when that channel is selected then it could go to a separate section of the circiut board and if so just remove that wire or the path. Sounds hard, but isn't.

Sorry. just got done as soon as you posted
