The Muff isnít even a fuzz.

Auerbachís recorded distortion tones almost all come from an Ibanez Super Fuzz, which is a copy of a Univox fuzz. The Black Cat Ultra Fuzz is a copy of the same Univox.

The Chinese clones are almost all junk. There are some Chinese factories that can do a good custom build clone, but cost+shipping on those is as expensive as a nice Epiphone.

Neck warpage has more to do with a bad piece of lumber than poor temperature controls. Extreme heat could cause a neck to warp, but thatís the kind of thing that involves a black car in the Texas sun.

Most of these products are just scented mineral oil. Fender Slick does the same thing as fast fret, costs less, the applicator covers all six strings at once, and the plastic is more durable.
