So I had a good weekend.

First, I won 2nd place in the Black&White Category in a photo contest. I think I should have won the whole thing, but that's neither here nor there.

Secondly, I totally pulled off an awesome trade. I traded my Seymour Duncan TweakFuzz, which is a great versatile pedal, but I could never make it work for me. My Big Muff suited me better. So I traded it, straight up, for an orange Ibanez Jet King JTK1. There was a catch. The guy I got it from tried to install a kill switch, so he had removed both the tone and volume pots. So I got a deal. I took it home, looked at the stock-wired tone and volume he had taken out, and got so confused that I wanted to just take it to my repair man and be done with it. But! I decided to be different.

I put the volume and tone pots back in the guitr, but I didnt wire them in. I wired the 3-way switch DIRECTLY to the output jack, made some grounds and presto! it worked. I gave it a good setup and it's playing like a dream. It has 2 buckers that you can split with little flip switches. I never use my tone and volume knobs anyway, keeping them all maxed out at all times, so why bother with them. It sounds pretty neat, trebly at times, but I tweaked it away on my amp knobs. Plays like a dream. All for a Fuzz pedal!

PICS!!!

they're big, hence the external links.

That's a really cool guitar, it almost reminds me of a Fender Jaguar but it's definitely original.

Yes, a U2 reference, but also a message I wish to convey! I also have it lasered into my rear license plate holder. To me it means that I love music and I'm always hoping for "Love and Peace" or I think we'll all find out what "or else" means way too soon! :shock:

Love and Peace or Else,
