ok can someone give me a rough guide on why people want to use preamp boosters such as JE-1000 or the MM-04 On-Off Boost Switch and insert them in the guitar? how does it work and does it have a switch(like the volume pot on every guitar)
Also,what is a bad situation to use it?
I now have a signature
Iirc the JE-1000 is a simple, single BJT amplifier. It feeds the volume pot to give you a bit of a boost. I can't remember if they have a bypass but it wouldn't be hard to add one. It's one way of driving the input of a valve amp harder. You can always back it off if you want it cleaner like you do with active pickups.
Not a fan, if it used a FET I'd be more interested but meh ..............

^ probably also acts like a buffer, to help defeat the effects of longer cables?
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
