what the hell does a buffer do?? is it possible that a ns-2 could actually boost my signal?
Nice, that was helpful for me too.

This should be in my signature...
Technically, a buffer does one thing: it isolates the input from the output.
Practically, a buffer for guitar provides the guitar a high input impedance, and outputs a low output impedance. A practical guitar buffer may or may not be a "real" buffer, in the technical sense described above. But for all practical purposes, it doesn't matter, and 99.9% of "guitar buffers" will also be "real" buffers, so no worries.
The high input impedance is so that none of the guitar signal is lost, and the low output impedance is for driving a wide range of output signals without signal loss.
