1975 Gibson Marauder circuit schematic

The early Marauder (schematic above) had a three way pickup switch, allowing selection of front, rear or both pickups. Both volume and tone pots had a resistance of 300K.

In 1976/77 the switch was changed to a linear taper potentiometer (early versions use part 70036, later 70009), allowing the user to blend the two pickups to any degree. The potentiometers listed for the Marauder are summarised here; volume pot is part 70031, tone 70033.
