    I guess for a collector that's something you'd want, no different than vintage toys and such. The nag I get is this

    "The Fuzz Face was embraced by Hendrix and used in the studio and on performances including at Woodstock and The Isle of Wight Festival in 1970.”

    I know he used the fuzz but I highly doubt this pedal did that much traveling, now I'm sure they meant he used the fuzz on basically everything. However, depending on how one reads this they could take the assumption, this pedal was the one used on everything. Same reason we have the warnings on shaving cream and such, lol.

    Imagine 20 years from now how that could go. The longer someone/something is gone, the more the history becomes muddied and blurred.

    Of course my son got me up at 4am so I may just be a bit grumpy, lol.

    wow that's roughly $3,250 per component; that thing can't have more than 10 parts to it.

    :D

    If you're dead, I guarantee you won't care about a Fuzz Face.

    Whoever bought that needs Leon’s 1964 Strat to go with it.

    I bet it doesn´t even work but I know there´s some collector out there getting hot all over it in some quieter minutes.
    It is a bad, bad world out there xD
    I have it good being not able to afford **** like that. No golden toilet seat and no garage full of Bentleys and Ferraris.
    Well, I would enjoy having toys like that at some point but def. not the toilet seat and the fuzz face.
    By the way I am absolutely sure Jimi would laugh about that, maybe he does right now from the heaven above.
    R.I.P Jimi

    Life is good,

    Pricey but cool.

    I guess the owner could take readings of the components and sell kits / fully built pedals based off of an actual Hendrix FuzzFace.
