    There are so many people trying to perfect the original. I thought it interesting how there were mods done on this thing.

    I didnt know he had 3 of them! How cool would that be being in the store when Hendrix came in and sold his stuff and you were there to be the first one to buy something??

    Oh man if they had eBay or Reverb back then he would have made a killing instead of dumping them for cash for a few bags of weed :)

    Wow, amazing pedal. Love that a tube box with duct tape was used as a cover, classic.
