Godin Acousticaster where to solder the 9v battery connectors to LR Baggs circuit?
Hey guys - I was given a non-working guitar a long time ago from a band-mate (I am a drummer
who plays a little bit of guitar as well). I knew nothing about this guitar, except it had broken electronics and he failed in trying to repair it. It has sat in one of my closets for years until recently one of my daughters has shown an interest in trying to play it. I would love to fix this thing up for her since it is a very cool looking guitar. In hopes of repairing it myself, I finally did some research on it and found out it is an old Godin LR Baggs Acousticaster. The guitar's internal circuit board says "LR Baggs 1991" and has 4 slider potentiometers (Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass - I think it is the same board which you guys are discussing here in this thread). Since there are no publicly available schematics, I need to see if I could get some help.
It has two individual corroded 9v connectors which have become completely seperated from the circuit board. I can solder and would have no problem buying a couple of new 9v connectors and soldering them into place, but the problem is that I cannot figure out where exactly they would need to be soldered to the board. I can see an area of the board where my band-mate tried to solder them but he burned up the area pretty good (looks like he tried to solder it with a freakin' blow torch).
Do the 9v connectors get chained to each other thus leaving one positive wire and one negative wire to connect to the guitar\board? Or is there really 4 seperate solder points for the two connectors? Also, one or two of the wires coming from inside the guitar look like they are supposed to be attached to the board also (but who knows where)? If I post a couple of pictures could one of you guys show me where to solder the connections? Are we allowed to post pictures here?
Thanks in advance!
