oh, and if you can afford it(cause i cant) you should consider getting an old wah pedal and take out all the electronics and put them in your guitar and have a "wah pot". it would be pretty simple because i think all wahs use a pot; you could just replace one of your tone controls(unless your ok with putting a new knob on your guitar.)
