Permalink Accutronics 4AB2A1C Reverb Tank and Jaguar Bridge Questions

New Topic
Page 1 of 1

Hi everyone. Looking for some help with the following:

Is it safe to a use an Input Grounded/Output Grounded 4AB2A1C tank in a reverb unit in place of the standard Input Insulated/Output Grounded 4AB3C1C?

Are any modifications required to replace the bridge on a MIJ Jaguar with an American made one?

For the tank? Yes.

Cheers,
Andy

Depends on the circuit. In some cases absolutely not. Especially for the input.
You could modify the input on the tank and cut the connection to ground:

It's for a vintage Fender 6G15 but I also have a Surfybear.

The tank is an old Accutronics and the connector circuit board is different to the one in the link.
