Hey, riding on the wave that people are taking their amps to bits, I thought it was about time I got to grips with my Overdrive Series 2, so yesterday I took it apart and lo and behold! I've got a date tag too! HOORAH! Well, I've determined the date it was tested. That would be 22nd of the 7th 1977! Same year as Star Wars! ROCK ON!!!!!!!!

Ps. anyone recommend a good reverb unit I could use? Someone was saying stuff about Electro Harmonix Holy Grail but its abit steep and the only true bypass mod version seems to be only available in the US.
Anyway, thanx! byeee
