Version 2 composée d'un micro neck réalisé spécialement pour Judge Fredd le "Mud my Day " qui est une version "sale"
du "whiskyssippi" car Judge voulait un micro capable de couvrir toute la discographie de "ZZ TOP" du premier album à nos jours . Le son des derniers albums étant particulièrement "sale , mais précis" , n'était pas possible avec version 1 , trop "propre" au gout de J.Fredd . Le micro bridge reste le même : Rising Sun .
