VOX pacemaker

Greetings,
I have an old VOX Pacemaker (solid-state) that has seen little use over the last 30 years. I've cleaned it up and replaced a couple of parts and it works wonderfully... but I'm afraid the footswitch (two-button that controls midrange boost and tremolo) has gone missing.

Here's my (possibly silly) question. Anyone have any idea whether or not the VOX VFS2 footswitch (currently an option for the pathfinder) will work for the Pacemaker? Slim chance, I know. But I was hoping someone might have some knowledge on the subject and perhaps save me the trouble of ordering one and having to send it back if it doesn't work.

thanks,
db

rewiring a strat

I have a standard mexican stratocaster, and I'd just like to rewire it so that all I have is one pickup and a volume knob. I tried it the other day and failed. Thanks for the help

Maitenence Help!

Hi everyone. I really need some help with my guitar but I know very little about electronics. Any advice that anyone here could give me would sure be appreciated.

I have a typical fender strat/squir. The problem with it is that the ground wire on my output jack disconnected. When I unscrewed the jack to take a look at it the main wire disconnected. I was thinking about sodering them back on to the jack but the ground wire was too short. With some wire cutters I tried to get some of the rubber lining off so I could have some more wire. Unfortunately the wire is so small that I couldn't do it. My friend had this nifty little trick of burning the rubber off but he burnt all of the rubber on the ground wire. So now instead of having a regular connection and a ground wire, I just have one big wire. Well that didn't stop my from trying to soder some of the wire to the main connection and some of the wire to the ground. After I got done I tried my guitar out but I'm still getting no sound.

What the hell can I do to fix this?

Absolutely. Try http://www.schematicheaven.com . I found a newly drawn pdf in the Vox section. Also there are lots of other schematics as the name implies. When I need a schem, I check them first.

Pickup Blend/Master volume Bass rewiring

I own a two pickup, two volume, one tone, passive electronic bass, and I want to rewire it to have a Master volume, pickup blend and tone knobs. Does anyone know how to do this ?
Any sites with good schematics?

Thanks in advance.

You should check out Anderton's "Electronic projects for musicians" for the Blend Control. It's actually more complicated to do then you might think. You technically need a log/antilog taper pot, but Anderton shows a way to get around this. The book is a good reference to have around anyway. (check the library, its a popular book)

Re: yngwie malmsteen fender schematic

First you have to learn how to spell connect! Then pull off the cover change the pickups by wiring them exactly the way they are already, wire for wire.
