Re: Trip + Presence + Why Dumble's Way?
Yes, you're absolutely right; this is what I get from not having the print in front of me while I type. Forgot completely about the 390 ohm resistor, which changes everything, of course.  
About the stability thing; I just meant that I think I would rather have an 820 ohm/100 ohm feedback node (some blackface Fenders) than a 100K/5K (Marshall) one, just in case lead dress or stray capacitance causes some earlier amp stage to pick up the signal from this node (where it may constitute positive feedback to that stage). It wouldn't actually be the output stage that was oscillating - sorry about that.
