Early 70's Cry Baby - Wah/Fuzz. You had to take to bottom off to adjust the settings on the fuzz, which you kicked in using the extra stomper at the front. But once you "found your sound", it wasn't too bad. Some classic fuzz tones in there.



Also have a Big Muff Pi from the same era. Second or third version iirc - known as the "Ramshead" version.

They both still sort of work, but are finicky. I keep 'em around mostly for fun.

1975 slope front Univox Fazer.
It still works perfectly and sounds thick and lush!

I bet you hate that you use the word "had" when talking about those two

Bigsby
volume/tone. Rocks up and down for volume and side to side for tone. Solid build and works perfectly.

Wow! That's cool. I've never seen that Bigsby device before. Any idea what year that is?

Likely late 40ís. Also likely used with steel guitar originally. Perfectly adaptable to guitar so you can get sweeping volume swells. Iím a fan of Paul Bigsby.
