I put two buffers in my Wolfish- a Wald and a GGG Blaster "clone". They are selectable by toggle, and the Blaster has a gain pot for easy adjustment.

Beautiful guitar.

Follow-up question about 'blasters and buffers: I'd thought that while a buffer can be configured to boost (i.e., > unity gain), the 'blaster boosts without buffering. Is this incorrect?

Alembic’s own description of their Blaster states that it “isolates capacitance of cable”. Is this different from buffering?

I’ve posted the question about the Blaster buffering on the Alembic site. Will post the answer here when I receive it.

Well, the word is that the Blaster does indeed act to covert a high impedance passive pickup signal to low impedance. Also, per Mica, the boosts you have in your Alembics are not Blasters, Jonathan. You got the in-house Alembic secret sauce!

Bill, tgo

Was this a kit guitar? I thought I read that somewhere. It looks awesome.
