    J M Fahey, I can't thank you enough for getting me over that final hump. I've been racking my brain with this for several months (although I love the challenge). I thought I had tried this configuration a while back, but it was too early on and I didn't have all the components together, like the right pickup and placement of the pick up, as well as the right capacitors on my guitar. The photo didn't show a trace going from C1 to IC pin 3 either. I now believe the trace is out of view. Now with it all together it sounds perfect. It's also very responsive and and clear to the ears. My only choice now is should I use C2 as shown or use it as you suggested. There is just a slight variation in the tone. I'm probably going to opt for your recommendation. Thanks for the coaching. You are the best !

    That looks correct. An excellent unity gain buffer.
