Guitars of Love


A handy true bypass pedal to enable selected FX to be bypassed - in my case the GuitFET OD unit. This allows me to utilise reverb, tremelo and delay without added distortion.

My custom GuitFET valve-like distortion unit had one disadvantage; namely that I didn't have room for a bypass footswitch. This solves the problem. In real life the yellow LED indicates that loop bypass is active, the green LED indicates a straight through function.

The finished unit. The LEDs are there just to indicate when bypass is engaged or not. Yellow = bypass engaged; green = normal.
