Hi. I wanna know if it is okay if I use a condenser microphone (+48V activated, of course) and an electric guitar at the same time. Wanna make sure if +48V will or will not damage my guitar's circuit and/or cable.

    There's no documentation that I can find that's definitive on the +48v wiring. I'd hope that the +48v is applied to the XLR connectors and not the jack part of the connector, but without checking one out with a meter I can't say that's the case. Maybe @Jeremy_NI can verify this?

    @mykejb You're right. Only on the XLR connection, your guitar is safe.
