    It's for those listeners who can't tell a (distorted) bass from a guitar :D

    Heh I like confusing people at show's with powerfull crunchy distortion that makes them wonder where its comming from. Just seems kinda a waste of ink just putting fuzz in front of bass if it wasnt something specific though. Blah I get my own fuzz on my fx processor.
