Squire used one of the many variations of the Wah Wah pedal made by Jen in Italy. This is identified by the white skirting on the pedal. Wah wah pedals have been used since the 60's and 70's. The circuit in the Jen wah's is virtually identical to the Vox v846 wah pedal. Most people buy the dunlop crybaby these days but you can get a vintage Jen one for much the same money. What's the difference? Well, the answer is not much in my opinion. Having tried a dunlop crybaby and a vintage Jen crybaby on a recording, the only sonic difference I could tell was that the Jen wah had more bass when the wah was in the cocked back position and when playing any lines on the high E string it seemed to give more wah effect than the dunlop. Like most pedals, a lot of the reputation of a popular pedal is narrowed down to 1 component. In this case, it's the type of inductor and how many windings it has. My Jen wah has the red fasel inductor. As for windings, I'm not sure!more
