Well to be honest, it depends what you want on it. If you're just after a booster then go to www.generalguitargadgets.com or www.tonepad.com and have a look. They're pretty self explanatory. If you're after something more than that it might take a bit of research. I would rip the one out of my strat and make a schematic, but its at home (i'm at uni at the mo!).

Let me know if you want some more info.

:D

Well theres loads of circuits there that will work. Could even put a tube screamer in yer guitar :D. But theres things like MXR microamps that have small circuit boards. Could replace a tone pot with the gain control and add a switch to turn it on/off B)

They're about $10 from tonepad so have a look :D

lpb1 ultra small boards. low parts counts. mine are a little over .5*.5" the newer ones are smaller than that but all the parts stand on end. and i have some ultra tiny .1uf caps. and parts are soldered on both sides of the boards but what do you expect for something nearly the size of .33*.29" pretty darn small :D

ok LK feel free why i need to hurt my eyes. i have an answer. lol :D
