I don't know about the JR

my first guitar amp a crate 2 twelve ( what a pile ) my fist to amps where crates.


any how it had a 1/4 INCH TRS on the back

my dad made a box and I threw a stomp switch in it
cant rember how it was done as it has been well over 15 years

but if you take a quarter inch trs and touch the bare wires you
can figure out the wires, reveb an what turns clear to dist.

TIP RING SLEEVE NOT A TIP SLEEVE
if you dont know a trs has three wires and a TS (guitar cord)
I used to confuse them all the time buy now I know.

you could always,
run a separate cable
to your get-box from
your amp and put a
couple of switches
on you get-ar

one wire is ground the other two wires when grounded
control the dist.-and verb
or none are ground they just complete
the circuit

it would be a fun project
to do on a guitar that is not used much
doing stuff like that is a can of worms
it never ends( hoppfully )
let the imgination roam
inovation starts with the little things and grows to big things

you can switch it all from your axe strait to your amp.

Sounds like fun....I've got Fernandez kicking around that I was thinking about setting up Nashville.

It could be torn apart.

I just searched on ebay and found a fender blues junior switch so that's gotta be what it's for.

is it cheaper to make a homemade switch box instead of buying the fender one for $40? or maybe just buy a used one?

Yep it's a foot switch.
It engages the fat mode.

Yes that it for the fat switch pedal which can be ordered from Fender.

Nashville means Nashville tuning, which is more than just a different tuning- you are basically using a light gauge of strings and then tuning EADGBE but one octave above on the 3rd-6th strings.
If you were to take the low strings off a 12 string guitar, that is a nashville tuning.
Gauges would be something like a .012, .016, .010, .014, .020, .030.

You can then retune in nashville tuning to something like an open g- which is great for playing slide.
