A good friend sent this to me as an "early Christmas present" ! (Thanks D !!!)

Photo's are "pre-cleanup" ...time to bust out the chrome polish !

Basically a "Superfuzz & wah combo".

AG - any idea what all the unused space on the PCB was for ?

Jep, we know that one. Better known in the Ibanez spagetti logo version. Made by Mica if not mistaken. Nice score!

let's check Bart's place:

I don´t know exactly.....

I have an Ibanez Standard Fuzz with empty space too and tried to figure out, what the empty space should do...
I came to the conclusion that the empty space on the standard fuzz probably was for an input stage as it can be found in the Univox Super-Fuzz and later was adapted for the more known FET-input-stage.
I never saw a fully assembled board.

There´s a sucker born every minute - and too many of them end up in the bootweak pedal biz.

My friend who gave it to me won it on ebay for $75...the seller thought the wah pot was bad, but it just needed cleaning... :)

My experience so far is that any Japanese scratchy wah from the seventies can be revived with cleaning only... in the contrary of any crybaby like wah..

Yep - one of those times that I'm really happy that most people have no idea about electronics ! :D
