It's a Vox Grey Wah. It's the predecessor of the Clyde McCoy. It tends to be thin and trebly. Actually works well in front of a fuzz - hence the reason he tended to use it early on. If you notice that's the tonebender there as well.
A Vox V847 would do fine though, the Clyde McCoy reissue wouldn't be so bad either, tends to be quite trebly.

That is not a wah pedal.

He changed wahs over the years:

1968 - July 1970 was the Vox Grey Wah. He also used it during the Yardbirds as well.
August 1970 to July 1971 was a Vox Clyde McCoy.
August 1971 to July 1973 he used the Thomas Organ Crybaby
He breifly used a Vox V846 in early 1975. By May 1975 he started to use the Crybaby again and continued to do so through the rest of Zeppelin.

Vox Clyde McCoy as far I know. I have a picture of him with a Clyde... I know Roger Mayer mentioned modding multiple wahs for him, all Voxes.

If Jimi gave Jimmy Vaughan a Crybaby then it was a Thomas Organ Crybaby which have been around since the late 60's. The Dunlop Crybaby came about after they bought out Thomas Organ in the 80's, 84 I think.
