Electronic bypass vs true bypass question
Hi!  
I was wondering if anyone had any comments on electronic bypassing for effect pedals as apposed to true bypassing. Is there really any difference in sound quality. I don't know if it is just my imagination but I have always been a little leary of electronic bypass as I think there is a difference in sound quality. I always felt that the input of the amp is very sensitive to any impedence changes that would bog down the guitar pickups to an extent. Could that be true?  
I would apreciate any comments.  
Thanks!  
John Fisher
