Product Description

Pete Townshend used a 1966 Gibson Maestro Fuzz-Tone fuzz box (serial no. 12362) on stage — occasionally (there many photos from this era showing Pete with no effects pedal) — in 1967. Noted dates include the Monterey Pop Festival appearance and, according to auction lot notes, was taken from the stage at the Who’s 17 November 1967 date at Shawnee Mission, Kansas, South High School. The Gibson Maestro Fuzz-Tone was one of the first mass-produced guitar effects pedals, first introduced in 1962 as the FZ-1 and was made famous by Keith Richards on “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” in 1965. In 1966, the FZ-1, running on a 1.5v battery, replaced the original. The Fuzz-Tone itself was the basis for the Sola Sound Tone Bender that Pete had employed in 1965 and 1966.
