    Well, my little pedalboard has served me well for almost 5 years now and it's getting too small, so over Christmas leave, I came up with plans to build a bigger one. Problem now is that I really didn't have a sense of proportion when I was drawing up the plans and the thing is just too damn big. I'm going to cut it down a bit before i put the carpet and velcro on it.

    Actually, the older, more "vintage" pedals are the ones that aren't cheap. Some of them are going for over a grand! Too much money for me though. If you/your wife are looking for a good distortion, look on evilbay for a slightly used Boss DS1. They sell new for under $40. I've seen them on e-bay for around $20-$25. And, you can't go wrong with the sound.

    Dude, I don't know how I missed that thread! It's a pretty sweet looking axe. I'm more into vintage type stuff, but I do appriciate quality. Besides that, even if it was an elcheapo guitar, it was free, right?

    BTW, looks like your boy is already off to a good start being exposed to rock and roll at such a young age. I'm going to be the same way with my kid (when I have one)

    im not a player more of a hacker of all things musical... but i also appreciate vintage gear (for its soul) i have recently refinished a 64 slingerland drum kit. i also have a thunderbird bass and 2 old martin guitars. martins are big out here because of the bluegrass thing. where ya at? how old are you? looks like a nice collection bro...

    I love Martins. I've got a very nice D15 Special (spruce top, mahogany body and rosewood fretboard). Of course the D15 is a low end Martin, but its kind of like having the low end Ferrari...it's still pretty nice and sounds great. I'm in OKC, and I'm almost 32, so my day job gets in the way of me rocking out like I was really born to. :D
