Sorry if this counts as reviving a dead thread but this is really killing me. I got mine today and I'm so disappointed at the sheer amount of signal lost. I had to turn up my 6505's pre and post gain up really high to match that of my guitar. I know nothing of electronics. Are the instructions for the mod is as follows? Remove the 3rd resistor (R3) Remove the two bridges for (R1) (R2) Remove the other two resistors (R1) (R2) Rebridge (R1) and (R2) with wire. Can I use the wire that came with it? Any help would be appreciated.
