*Note 1: The 535Q originally came with two misplaced resistors, effectively making it ”hardwire”. They were omitted from later revisions, but you can look for them in yours. If R41 and R42 (above the input/output jacks) are present, the pedal is not fully true bypass. Removing them restores the true bypass function.

**Note 2: Some (or all) DB-02 pedals have a misplaced circuit trace making them ”hardwire”, even though everything else is wired for true bypass (read more about it here). The DB-02 circuit board is based on that of the GCB-95F, and while the Classic doesn’t seem to have had this issue, it may or may not be present in other pedals that are based on the Classic (for instance early revisions of the SC95 Slash Classic).
