    How much of a discount did you snag?

    I couldn't resist the Alexander BF sale. Picked up a Space Race, Syntax Error, and Marshmallow. The Marshmallow is new for me, the other two I already have but I'm going to swap out for the black editions because they look way better.

    Just because I like doing pedalboard mockups ...

    For reference, this all fits (probably) on a Temple Trio 21 board (measures 21" x 16.5").

    I hope Alexander makes a black edition of the Sky 5000. Definitely needs to happen because A E S T H E T I C S.

    $300 + free ship. Not incredible, but I think good enough for this one. I was also prowling for one of the floral Walrus slo pedals but was trying to get black friday pricing on them (rather than paying $200+).

    Just got a Maxon 808 for like the 5th time. I think I am just going to keep this one forever. (I always sell gear when not using)

    BUT I also have a KM-7 mk-iii artist on order. Got a sweet deal from my SW guy and basically just waiting for the next batch to arrive. I got the trans black on order but I may switch to blue, not sure yet.

    That’s probably a better price than you could’ve gotten for a used DW on Reverb.

    I personally love G&L pickups. I think they're some of the best in-house stock pickups you can find for cheap money. Their MFD pickups with their bass and treble contour controls might be my fav stock strat pickup set of all time, and I got that on a $400 brand new guitar. :)

    Unfair comparison probably... The Fender I a/b'd it with was actually the FSR Goldtop, with splittable Dimarzio Super Distortions. I thought the Fender sounded slightly better (and it looked like a Tele version of a Les Paul Goldtop which I dig). But, the G&L was unbeatable for the price, sounded good, and played amazing.

    BTW it's not going to be a dream guitar of mine because it was posted several days before payday dammit. Oh and because I'm not looking to get divorced. That too.

    It was only the second version of a certain model of Peavey Custom Shop guitar I'm aware of (and I own the other).

    Is the black version of Jubilee the same as the regular silver? That is a fantastic pedal. My only complaint was I felt like it had no volume gain. I didn't bring it with me but IIRC it needed to be at like 8 or 9 for Loudness to be at unity gain for my rig. But otherwise it didn't feedback at any setting it had usable distortion no matter what the settings. Can't recommend it enough. Congrats killer rig they make great stuff.

    Im curious about the ASAT Deluxe pickups. Idk if they're their USA line or their import line of pickups. I just know I looove the Superhawk Tribute pickups to death.

    Yeah there's nothing different about these black versions, just aesthetics.

    I've only tried various Neo series Alexander pedals, haven't tried the Jubilee yet.

    I'm really thinking about upgrading from my POD HD500X to Helix native based on a computer because it's just so much more convenient to bring a laptop with my PA than a multieffects. Not really sure how big of an upgrade the Helix is to the 500X because I can't get my hands on one to try it out - plus, even if a local store had one, the default patches are not going to show me the sound I'd make in any way, and it'd take hours to mess with in the store.

    I'm looking to get one of those Mooer preamp micro pedals, can't decide between the 009 Engl Blackmore clone or the EVH 5150. I play early 90's and technical death metal style tone.

    Went a little silly and I need to stop. I already posted about the KM7 I ordered. Ended up finding a near mint used one for a good price that will ship today.

    Then while cancelling my SW order (they were taking forever to get more stock) I ordered a few pedals that were on cyber sale.

    Going to perform some surgery on my Floyd. With no anesthesia! Feel the knife pierce you intensely! :evil: (Actually it's all fairly non-invasive and fully-reversible.)

    Love that it looks right out of an 80s guitar mag.

    Everything Roland has made looks right out of an 80s guitar mag.
