    Ha! If there was such a thing at the time I'd have been all over it. Instead I had to go with these two:

    The first pedal I had was one of these "Roadkill" distortion pedals:

    It was a gift. I was never much into distortion though and never really used it much.

    I could, but I'd be lying. Never owned one.

    A Gibson Maestro Fuzz Tone. The only effects pedal I was personally aware of, I repeat only pedal! I knew of other than the vibrato/reverb, on/off switch on an amp when I bought it. That definitely dates me. '66-'67? can't remember for sure. Stone age. I later had a wierd, little, unusual one called a Sunn Buzz that plugged directly into the input jack of the guitar as I remember. When I've mentioned the Sunn Buzz to other oldtimers in years passed, when discussing old gear, nobody remembers them, and they probably think I'm imagining things. Maybe?

    I have no idea why. I was a 17-year old kid working in a music store, teaching guitar lessons and for some reason I had to check one of these out.
