i believe its the original, the only knobs are on the bottom "boost" and something else that i can't remember off hand. . . and one on the side "tone" basically. I think it's probably alright, cause the guy i borrowed / took it from never said anything about it giving him problems. . . of course, he also when asked, has no clue how i should fix it. . . i was just throwing this out there to see if anyone new anything. I'm gonna keep playing with it, and i'll probably work it out.
thanks for your input though.
