Some of the Morley Custom Shop wahs are are limited edition, with as little as 250 pieces available worldwide.

A few of these artists even have their own pedals named after them. The Mini George Lynch Dragon 2 and the Mark Tremonti wahs are popular examples.
Question: How does Morley's switchless technology work?
Morley are relatively tight-lipped on the subject but they have revealed that they use optical switching. This means that light is used (and a lack thereof) to determine the strength of signal and hence the sweep position and intensity of the wah. This uses no physical off/on type switching so it'll last indefinitely too. When you place your foot on that wah, the pedal actually depresses very slightly, telling the pedal to engage the effect. So, when you remove your foot, the 'link' in the chain is broken and the effect automatically disengages.
