    Hey Folks...

    I have a preamp, description in title, with 3 loose wires and the Jack wire. With the pictures provided, can someone tell me where the 3 wires go? The Pot in question is a push/pull, not sure what for, maybe passive/active as it has original 9v EMG's. The Orange wire has a curl in it that looks to be soldered right next to the Yellow, but then I cannot be sure. The Orange to the Jack could be wired to the pot possibly? (larger gauge wire on the pot from the 2nd vol pot?)

    Orange, Red and Brown. I'm thinking power in, Positive signal out and ground. Again, the 2 orange wires are questionable.

    Thanks for all your help, Rikkers hasn't replied in days and I want to get to soldering and hear this old thing, :)
