They did a lot of strange things in the old fuzz pedals. :) Not sure what octave fuzz we are talking about though. Most modern ones, if not all, have volume controls. It's easy enough to add a...

If you changed the inductor and 4.7uf, then something is probably making the inductor not function.

The 1K and 4K share the same IC so it's possible the IC needs to be replaced. The LED's work independently of the sliders so that is a different issue. You would have to check the LED circuit out to...

Yeah, not talking about GFS brand pickups. Talking about their Non-GFS OEM Pickups like the first post stated. I've tried a few of GFS brand pickups and they are good.

I'm using both right now. I really can't tell a difference.
