    I am pretty sure this is true, but happy to be corrected if I a wrong.

    It is a bit Spinal Tap but lovely.

    Jimi said to his roadie that he wasn't happy with the Dunlop Wah during a sound check, so his roadie swapped it over.

    Nope.. not happy with that one.

    After about 6 different Wah's the Roadie got fed up and plugged in the original Dunlop without telling Jimi.

    "Thanks man, that's perfect"

    Ha ha :)

    After his discharge the guy wasn't straight a day in his life.
    That's a silly story.

    I heard that story in an interview with one of his roadies years ago, possibly the person in charge of teh guitars on that tour. But then it wasn't the pedal it was half a dozen strats. Chinese whispers and mythology.

    Remember no one has an incentive to be accurate. The whole music industry runs on good stories to promote sales. Do you really think record sales data is accurate ? I bet 9/10 of the rock and roll stories are BS...
