Pre-refined electronics NEEDED!
« on: August 30, 2018, 05:57:58 PM »
I need a full set of pre-refined ribbon cables, pots, switches, etc. including the Fishman preamp.

Anyone willing to sell?

I am helping a forumite restore their Fly - his electronics were damaged by someone who refinished his guitar for him.

I would think you'd be better off using the refined electronics.  Those parts are readily available.

Yeah it seems to me that a rewire without ribbon cable is the best way to renovate for durability and ease of install.

Wow! Did you find the other stuff? Amazing.
You should post some pics of the guitar you are working on.

That can be done but you lose the tone control on the piezos, which I personally like to have.

I agree Paul, That tone control and the sound of the original Fishman piezo system is great, and the person I am helping wants to keep it.

And I never worry about ease of install, not that pre-refined is hard to install as it isn't, but the harder the funner!
