This is a library of perfboard and single-sided PCB effect layouts for guitar and bass. I'm not an electrical engineer by any stretch of the imagination, just a DIY'er who likes drawing layouts. It is meant for the hobbyist (so commercial use of any of these layout is not allowed without permission) and as a way to give back to the online DIY community.

JHS Morning Glory
The JHS Morning Glory is a modified Blues Breaker overdrive, but with an added JFET output buffer to increase the volume. The original Marshall circuits barely made it above unity with the volume maxed (see the video below), so the output buffer is a good improvement over the original. There's also a high cut switch to help tame single coils a bit. I wasn't quite able to get the on-board pots to be in the exact layout as the JHS units (the Tone control and High Cut switch are reversed), but it's close enough. You should be able to board mount the SPST high cut switch as well.
