Boss DS-1 Distortion, rare gold edition

''This super-special-version DS-1 has a visual impact,with a dazzling gold finnish. This commemorative model celebrates the achievement of six million BOSS compact effects shipped worldwide, and was produced in a special limited edition in February 1998. Among ordinary users, there's probably no one who has actually seen the real article. That's as it should be because this DS-1 is the rarest of the rare, and was only presented to overseas joint venture firms, in honor of their great contribution to BOSS sales. In general, replicas of this model often lack the function of the original, but the insides of this DS-1 are exactly the same as the original.  In other words, if you plug in a guitar, it'll give you distortion. The inscriptions on the input and output jack also enhance the box's elegance.''

I do not own the original box.
I don't even know if it ever had one.

I bought this pedal some years ago from a guy, without knowing what a special item this pedal is. Only recently I came about to find that this pedal is a special collector sought after one.

If you do have any more questions or need any more photos please feel free to ask.
