        No doubt the seller is trying to imply it's Fripp's, or given his seller name, that it belonged to David Gilmour. It's not Fripp's given that in the mid '80s he had a box built that contained several different circuit boards taken from fuzzes, one of which was a Burns Buzzaround, and one assumes was his original. I've never heard of Gilmour using one. He seemed to be a dedicated Fuzzface man until he started using Big Muffs.

          Fripp had two

          the original seller in January (http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&_trksid=p4340.l2557&rt=nc&n ma=true&item=280804694063&si=rv7svkMJMDAIKoUyz6XlF u59ZOk%253D&viewitem=&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc#ht_500w t_1100) says the pedal was bought in 1970 in Aus. bit strange that it would be sitting around the shop for this long but i've seen photos of two others that were bought new in Australia and read about a third (which may or may not be this one, don't know). it's pretty safe to say that there is no connection with a celebrity guitar player in the UK using this fuzz.

            Wasn't there a thread about this pedal a few days ago? Where'd that run off to.

              I was too lazy to look at the sellers location haha. Maybe it's a front. Fake address or something to get more shipping money. I'M ONTO YOU!
              yep

                the other thing about this pedal is that the photos in the auction are exactly the ones in the original auction:

                You would think for a pedal where the seller is trying to get a ****************load of money, he would take about 50 detailed pics, and not just reuse the ****************ty ones from an auction 3 months ago?

                  no, fuggnuts, i'm not the seller. it got linked to on another forum complaining about nutty eBay prices, and i figured you guys might know. i know it's probably worth a fair amount, just wanted to see how far out of whack this guy is. a couple guys were saying it's only worth a few hundred. just a curiosity, i have no real interest or stake in vintage pedals.

                  very interesting to see the original auction, thanks!

                    I personally don't find the Buzzaround, that great. I've played a real one once.
