    Hi all,

    I've recently purchased a Lane Poor onboard pre from a fellow tb'er. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for one of these that I could get a scan of? Or at least an idea of how to wire it up?

    TIA.

    Here is the info for the one I have which I can not guarantee is like yours… but

    With the preamp board turned so the LED is on the lower left and the connectors are on top.

    The top connector left to right is
    9 volt battery +, 9 volt battery -, switched stereo jack input (really the negative side of the battery also), jack ground, preamp out which often runs to a vol pot

    The bottom connector left to right is
    pickup #1 hot in (often from the blend sub-pot #1), pickup #1 ground, unknown, pickup #2 ground, pickup #2 hot in (often from the blend sub-pot #2)

    Thanks for the help. I'll take a look and see if that works.
     
  4. I'll look around and see if I still have my wiring diagram.

    Barring that, the LP preamp was designed by a guy named Wayne Mitzen. His website is http://home1.gte.net/wamnet/ If anyone knows, it's probably him.
