I've wanted one of these for about 20 years and I've seen a few. They all had issues. Either horrible hum, shocking issues, grounding issues, hacked up etc.. Today I found one that's been 3 prong converted and had the foot switch and output cable updated. New caps and DEAD SILENT. These are finicky little bastards but when working right there's nothing quite like them. The "Mike" input adds the perfect amount of grit and gain to push a clean Fender.
