I use a tele and tweed deluxe. Mostly always on. Like you say hard to turn off. I just let my good buddy borrow mine. He lives in a house he rents from me right at the end of my driveway and I can hear him playing it with his Les Paul and a Vox AC 30 right now. Friggin great. He is leaving it on all the time and like me rides the volume knob. He likes it at about 10:00. I like it at 1:00. I use it on the bass setting not sure where he has it set but it covers so much ground. We were both talking about an hour ago and how it can cover metal to blues. Best pedal for anything classic for sure.
