Quote related to 'Mustapha' from 'Jazz'

Though some people think that the secret to my tone is my use of a wah-wah pedal as a tone filter, this is untrue (though I do recall doing this once on Mustapha to get that strangled kind of Eastern sound). Actually what I do is experiment with different pickup combinations. You see, most switching systems don't take advantage of the range of sounds available from a three-pickup configuration.
