Thanks AdamJ and MikeBarHoot!

So I had a lot of fun putting that pedalboard together. I took it to the band rehearsal dungeon and left it there. I decided to build a backup board or just one for around the house to keep the floor tidy and experiment with different effects.

I looked around and found this online and sent an offer that was accepted. I knew it would be a lot of work to strip it bare and prepare it for different pedals. What an understatement! I underestimated how much scraping and adhesive remover I was gonna need. Let alone how much velcro.

Here's the populated board before they removed the pedals and then some photos of the pedals removed except the huge Mondo power supply and all the cables that were included in the sale and needed stripped off:

So after hours of unscrewing the wooden riser blocks, scraping adhesive and velcro. It's finally ready for carpet... or velcro. I choose velcro soft side.

And finally this is the monster I created. Some pedals are redundant because they are crucial or just part of my style and sound. For instance I love my loop switchers for one as that helps keep tap dancing to a minimum and also takes pedals not in use out of the signal chain.

Another for instance is the Whammy DT is vital for all the different tunings I use.

This was supposed to be an extra board or something to experiment at home with but really what has happened is it's looking like it will be my stereo board and my other one will be mono. I barely got it built and it's already evolving into something different haha!

Nice Fuzz Probe! I used to have so many Zvex pedals way back in the day, including a Fuzz Probe and a Wah Probe (and a Seek Wah, a Fuzz Factory, and a Wooly Mammoth). Went from having a crazy pedalboard to no pedals at all, and recently built this one:

Also building a Wolfgang:

Thanks xtcclassic! That's a nice tidy board you got. I spy some Pigtronics and Radial. I have some of their pieces. I also have and use that same Keeley Compressor Plus! I have 2 of them, one on each board!

Nice guitar build! I used to have a Peavey Wolfgang Special and can't understand why I let it get away.

The rotary and tremvelope pedals have my attention. I would like to incorporate those effects some time.

Good eye spotting the Fuzz Probe but it's one of the pedals that's gonna be coming off of that board. I just cannot get anything musical from it without so much effort. I don't think it gets along with my guitars with active pickups. Hmm, maybe I'll try a guitar with passive and weaker pickups first.

Well, “musical” is not exactly what comes to mind when I think of anything Fuzz-Factory-related.  :D  More like apocalyptic pandemonium, but fun.

I had a Wolfgang Standard stoptail back in the day, and I’ve always regretted selling it. The neck was amazing and the guitar was so alive and resonant that it won me over despite me not having a high opinion of Peavey and not being an EVH fanboy. I found someone selling NOS Peavey Wolfgang bodies, necks, and cases so I jumped on the opportunity to get another one at an affordable price and build it to my specs.

The Wolfgang project is done and it’s fantastic.

Nice! @xtcclassic and @AdamJ

Here's a couple used guitars I scored.

The first, an ESP LTD Michael Amott Sig has been hanging on someone's wall since it was bought new. It still had the original set of strings. Um, but not anymore. I polished the frets, put on fresh strings, and adjusted the trem.

The second is an ESP LTD Elite MII. This guitar may as well be brand new as it is mint. It needed nothing done. The strings even feel and sound new.

Still woodsheding trying to git gud. Here's an example from the video series I'm doing. I started this video project as a way to document how I play the songs I know so I can reference them when I forget a song or a passage or tricky parts.

It's very useful to me as the number of songs that I need to remember for the metal cover band I'm in and also favorite personal songs. I will post some of my cover band if anyone's interested.
