For 40 years the DS-1 Distortion has brought hard-edged attack and smooth sustain to guitarists around the world.

Now, inspired by the original, this limited edition 40th Anniversary DS-1 features the same design and classic tone as the original created back in 1978. BOSS has taken the classic design it pioneered years ago and added modern, eye-catching style with gold lettering and gold-capped knobs upon a sleek black body along with a vintage silver thumbscrew for the battery compartment.

Includes a special edition 40th Anniversary packaging.
