Oddball guitar wiring question


SPackwood

Recommended Posts

Is anyone familiar with R A Gresco guitars? I know the basic history of the make and have seen a couple examples over the years but am in need of some help. I recently picked up a basket case as a project. It's been disassembled for about a decade and the wiring is a mess. Everything seems to be there (including the 'Tone Cube' active EQ) but the wiring was cut in several places for removal. Pictures? Diagrams? Leads as to who might have one that I can glean some info from? Thanks in advance...

It hasn't arrived yet, so no pics for the moment, but they pretty much went overboard on the switchgear. It's got a strat style pickup set, the rear is a stacked humbucker. As far as the switching goes, there is an array of 4 toggles (don't know at this point if they're single or double throw or a combination thereof), 1 volume pot and 2 tone pots. There is also an active tone circuit. The question isn't whether or not I can make it work, but if I can figure out how it was originally wired. The switchgear and pots are all there, but most of the wiring is either cut or gone, hence the query as to anyone familiar with these guitars in particular. Until I get it here I suppose there's not much point in getting too far ahead of myself.

Yeah, thanks Lokair. I'm already a member of that group and posted a query there and on the Myspace Gresco page. Been scouring the Ibanez forums, too as Roger Gresco was instrumental in developing the Ibanez USA Masterbuilt Series, so there's a bit of crossover there as far as collectors go.
