    bought an eventide space reverb for christmas. so many possibilities with this thing, although i feel like i need a midi foot controller to really unlock its potential. sold the boss dm-2 to get it, planning to buy a memory man in the future as a replacement.

    The BYOC big muff clone definitely will be my next project. I also may try the Fuzz Face clone, as I am unhappy with the latest Dunlop reissue.

    Which DIY pedals are on your board?

    the smaller one is actually the BYOC big muff triangle clone - definitely worth getting. the other one is a 4ms phaseur fleur - very tweakable phase. planning on painting them matte black later.

    i actually bought a few parts to build a modified version of the BYOC overdrive 2 but never really got around to actually buying the kit, maybe later this year.

    Well, the last time I saw Stephen Stills perform it looked like he was putting a little too much BBQ sauce on more than just his strings. ;)

    we had a 2003 or 2004 60's Relic Strat sitting around that nobody played, so for a project my father stripped the body paint and refinished it with Fiesta Red nitro paint. I certainly don't need another guitar hanging around, but he saw it as a fun project and since he finished it in December, it ended up being a Christmas gift for me. He actually took the finished product and wrapped it in paper, no case or anything.

    Had intended to order a Two Rock Classic Reverb on 1/1/12 as a belated xmas gift to myself but ended up pulling the trigger on an overcoat instead. Amazing how our priorities change. LOL

    Love mine. It's a shame it has to sit in the states while I'm in the UK most of the time though.

    If you do get one at some point, the feedback switches on the rear of the amp are surprisingly (or maybe unsurprisingly if you understand how these things work, unlike me) important in terms of getting certain sounds - for instance, I couldn't get close enough to the John Mayer tone I had expected, and then I found out what his feedback settings were and there it was, all of a sudden. I can't remember what the settings are though.

    Great, thanks for the info, that will probably save me some severe disappointment. What cabinet and speakers did you get?

    IIRC, TC, you're a big Mayer fan. He was at a bar I was at once. A lot taller than I thought.

    was it that bar in Nolita on the corner (can't remember the name of it, might be closed now) ? My friend's name is John Mayer (spelled differently) and he said he ran into John Mayer in that bar sometime last summer..

    It was in Williamsburg. I guess he was bar hopping last summer.

    Yes, I'm a little embarrassed to admit it but I am a huge fan. I've played guitar since I was 7 but with professional life, family and all, it has really become a second tier priority. JM's live music and Try! album really reignited my interest in guitar, since the only formal teaching I have is blues based and I also used to play a lot of Hendrix. The guy is a tone master and I've tried to replicate his rig as best I can, the Classic Reverb is sort of the missing link at this point, and it seems like such a wonderful amp on top of just trying to replicate JM tones. Oh and no doubt, he's tall (has huge hands) and certainly likes his booze! I so want to just get the amp but it will cost me $10k becuase my wife is not oblivious to what these things cost and will certainly expect some kind of equivalent toy for herself! LOL I thought about just getting it and putting the Fender logo on the grill cloth and hope she doesn't notice. She hasn't set foot in my office in months so it might at least buy me some time.
