John Frusciante’s Fuzz Face
John used this pedal early on, circa 1991. It is, unfortunately, unknown to which extent he used it, and if he used it at all during the Blood Sugar Sex Magik studio sessions or just while playing live. Also, since there are no photos (to our knowledge) of him with the pedal, it is unknown whether he used a vintage model or a newer one.
I have an Ibanez wah-wah pedal, because it has a wider range than the others. I use a Fuzzface and a Boss distortion pedal, and an MXR phase shifter, and that’s about it.Guitar (UK), February 1991

I remember that I saw at some point in time a video of JF using a red Germanium Fuzzface,but that´s the only thing that I could recognize about it because the video had eally bad quality
If you happen to come across that same video ever again, please remember to post it here. I can’t find any visual reference of him using a specific model. Cheers, Dan.
