    Yep. At it again... The original pre in my old Legacy. I don't have a clue why it even has a battery since it doesn't seem to do anything but cut high frequencies.

    Replacing it with a Bartolini pre that cuts and boosts at 30hz and 6khz. Also adding a 3way on/on/on switch to use the humbucking pickup in series/single/parallel mode.

    The switch arrives tomorrow.

    Got all the components in. Throwing it together tomorrow.
    This is the wiring scheme. Where red (hot) gets connected to the pre thru the volume pot and gnd gets connected to erm well gnd.

    Smart people thought this up. Me I just copy it.

    The single pickup Zon Legacy will be having three pickup modes and active bass + treb EQ. In theory this SHOULD be an improvement and make it more versatile.
    But time will tell if I am being smart or stupid here... Stay tuned!
