Ha Ha it wasn't broke really,
It is just missing what goes on top off the power switch to turn it on/off with the treadle.
I can do it by pressing it with my finger
Sounds really good too,even has a decent battery in it.
Its a good thing cause the treadle attaches to a slide pot with a stainless steel arm/very simple but effective.
And the board that holds the slide pot is wedged or glued in and I cant flip the main board without removing the other two sub boards and that includes the one with the slidepot that I couldnt pull out.
Lesson learned- dont take the guys word for it that its broke before you test it yourself...
Now to figure out a switch for it ,it has a remote switch jack,maybe I should just build an A/B/on/off box for it.
Its definetly not true bypass.
Any suggestions here?
