    I just saw this pic on ebay, and it doesn't look real to me. For one thing, the in/outs are on the wrong sides. Also, there is no hi/mid/lo switch on it. Is this just an older model? And if it is real, what do you do about the in/outs being on opposite sides?

    What's the deal?

    It's the older model. It's legit. As far as the input/output being reversed, you need to use longer patch cables to route around it. George L.'s are good for that. Some say the older ones sound better, but I couldn't hear a difference.

    Hope this helps.
