    I already have the schematic. :)

    More pics when I publish the article.

    BTW I know what the pedal *is*. What I want to know is who manufactured it for Guild, which I think we have a lead on.

    The behavior you describe is a result of what is called "coupled wiring" and has to do with the way in which the pickups are connected to the volume pots. Modern Les Pauls are coupled, for example....
