I was chatting with James Williamson about his silver burst Les Paul custom, and we were discussing the cool equipment list of his gear on Equipboard. He requested I try to get the graphic changed from the Sex Drive to the F.E.T. Pre amplifier made by Steve Giles. He hasn't used the Sex Drive since 2010. Our email discussion is posted below. Thanks, Todd Novak on behalf of James Williamson. James Williamson Attachments9:46 PM (22 hours ago) to Todd Hi Todd, The graphic is great except the pedal I used after about 2010 was switched to one of these (see attached)...they are a special top boost pedal much like the sound from an AC30...they are the best. Please put this pedal in the graphic if you can. I used it instead of the sex drive.

Its a Vintage FET Pre-Amp Treble Boost. It is out of manufacture currently but a new company may be formed to continue on making them." - James Williamsonmore
