I got this while looking to get some different tones from my guitar. I didn't want to spend money on a new guitar just to get a new sound. So I got this pedal, and love it. It gives each guitar a brand new life. I used it on a low end ibanez bass also, and it made that bass sound awesome. I highly recommend this pedal! Don't buy a new guitar, just get this pedal and see what sounds you can get from your old guitar. My only complaint is to change the battery you have to unscrew the back screws and they get stripped very easily. Don't use this without a power adapter for long or else those screws will give you a major headache.
