I got the bug to break out one of my old electric guitars and fire up the Fender Deluxe to see if it still worked. I also broke out my favorite fuzz box: the MXR Distortion +. Of course it needed a new battery, but the one that was still in there made me smile. The whole set up still worked, albeit with some pops and crackles. Boy, they used to make stuff to last, didn’t they.
