I've just acquired a defunct MS and I'm going to attempt a rehousing project to include true bypass as well as an assignable foot controler. Here are some gut shots of the original: In this shot you can see how simple the switches are. Many think they are rugged metal TB type contact switches, when in fact they are nothing more than bubble contact switches under a faux metal button! Here's a shot of the underside to show how the switches look on the business end: The potentiometers are well spaced enough to allow cables to be attatched to the original circuit without worrying about causing shorts. The back end is relatively simple with all the circuit trails leading to the output /input jacks being clearly traceable and no neighbouring magical mystery tour circuit tracks to speak of, i.e; the circuit ends at the end of the circuit board: I think the largest shock for me was finding out that the MS housing is not actually metal, but plastic. I had always thought it was metal due to the weight, but that is the result of the rather sturdy base plate. This particular exhibit suffers from a kerput main output stage. The headphone out works fine but the jacks are deader than dead, probably an easy enough problem to fix anyway. Will keep everyone posted on how it's going. john.
