Nice board. Big fan of the Carbon Copy and Hall of Fame. How is that OCD/Tube screamer pedal? Never seen that before.

Thanks! That pedal is a real treat. A little local company - named Hedgehog Stompboxes -  focks around with very accurate circuitry replicas, and made that little jewel joining OCD and TS9 in the same box. I usually use both humbuckers and single coils guitars in the same set, and I really needed the best OD for every pickup configuration, while saving prime estate on the board.

Cool stuff there! I also have the Carbon Copy on my board, the Polytune (first incarnation, white version, still works wonders) and the wah (though I keep that one on the side of the pedalbord to leave space for the other stuff).
Hey dude slow the fuck down so we can finish together at the same time.  :biggrin:

Added a new guitar to the collection............I scour the usual places online for mispriced "assets" and got this brand new custom made , one of a kind for a steal in an auction.  The luthier stuffed up with his starting bid and it didn't attract the interest he expected.   Snapped it up for 3 figures ( a few cups of coffee a week for the next year thanks to Zip-pay) when it's really worth multiple thousands.  The case, pickups and tuners could be sold for more than I paid for the whole thing.  He was very close to just shafting me and calling off the sale- which I would've hated but understood - but I sweet talked him into honouring the auction result  :hat

Handcrafted custom guitar (literally all hand done with old fashioned tools over a 12+ month period) with locally sourced Australian timbers. 

-walnut and silky oak body with neck-thru
- ringed gidgee fretboard
- book matched red cedar top
- Schaller strap locks
- Schaller Hannes bridge
- gold Evo frets
- tusq nut
- Sperzel custom locking tuners
- Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem set with coil tap plus series/parallel switch for each and speed dial vol/tone
- abalone fret markers  (also the tiny ones on the neck......a nice touch and work like luminous ones you see on Ibanez Az's etc...)
- snakeskin case

Plays great and would have to be up there with my most beautiful guitars.   Very thin/light weight too.

I love the design and pattern running at the back of the thru neck and the body.  Lovely looking instrument.  Looks in perfect nick too.

The racing stripes are awesome Jingle!  Bet it plays like "The Cleaner" pulling up to the Muffin Top Shop (Top of the Muffin TO YOU!)

Speaking of keepers... after long thought, I'm going to part with my Majesty (2016 first-run Copper Fire) and wanted to give you guys the first crack at it at a lower price before I post it to Reverb.  I simply don't play it as much as I play my others and I feel like it would better serve another player.  It's never been gigged and it's been lightly played over the five years I've owned it.

Shoot me a PM if you guys want to see it.  I realize that I may be posting in the wrong thread for it... if so, let me know and I'll move the post.

Now with Twitler taking a high end steak of this caliber and insulting the cow that died for it by having it well done just shows zero respect for the product, which falls right in line with the amount of respect he shows for pretty much everything else.- Lonestar

I can live with that  :lol

Snakeskin case probably got me over the line.  :hat

The "racing stripes" on the body/neck are not painted btw...........each is a different piece of wood (walnut/oak/walnut etc...)
