Sparked by your comment I found a couple of articles online:

This one at VintageGuitar.com contains some interesting backgound information.

And this one at Wikipedia says (near the end) that the FZ-1A (mine) was a 1965 redesign of the original FZ-1. My FZ-1A used a single 1.5v battery, which is what an AA battery is.

Thanks for your input.

I'm currently in Utah, near Salt Lake City. I'll be moving to Fort Wayne, Indiana mid-January. If someone in either location can repair this pedal (expert repairs only) please weigh in.
