Re: The ultimate list of cheap copies of great pedals thread!

I've had both, and the SubNUp has a lot 'woofier' an octave down; the POG by comparison is quite 'metallic' (in both octaves), and does a lot better - or punchier, at least - into distortion with the normal signal. I'd guess that the SubNUp would work great with less distortion, as a 100% octaved s...

Re: The ultimate list of cheap copies of great pedals thread!

The Tender Octave mk1 was an actual clone of the Micro POG; the firmware actually had EHX references still left in it haha Mooer got sued, and then released a mkii that isn't as good. All other cheaper octaver/pitchshifters suckkkkkk. Ah, I see. Well, at least it was cheap. I've been fine with the ...

Re: The ultimate list of cheap copies of great pedals thread!

electro-harmonix Pog 2/Micro Pog Mooer Pure Octave I referenced this list when I was looking for a bi-amp octave. I bought the Mooer. It was okay . As a pure bassist replacement, it sounded a bit off. It sounds like a bass through a chorus pedal. I picked up a TC Electronics Sub n Up (Mini?), and t...

Re: Project: Player Jaguar in mahogany

I love the Firebird style burst, looks great. As I said in the other thread it might be worth looking at okume for the body wood, it looks pretty much like mahogany, but is lighter at a more reasonable cost - light mahogany is out there but expensive. I will check into this, thanks for that tip! Al...

Re: Project: Player Jaguar in mahogany

This is going to be sweet- I wasn't going to start this thread until I ordered the neck, which I was waiting to do when the ORM sold, which still hasn't happened. I just figured why not, I ordered the white Duncan JB and it arrived today, so I'm now committed to making this build. it’s funny how bu...

Re: Ibanez RG760 Restomod

Holy shit, that thing looks almost original now. If I hadn't seen the condition it was in before I would have just assumed this was a regular RG that you stuck some neon on.

That's quality finish work there, man.

Project: Player Jaguar in mahogany

A bit back I was gifted a lefty Mosrite body by our buddy here cooter. The catch on it, was that I needed to find a neck for it to finish it. I still have not found a neck that doesn't cost like $800. Through several days of searching, and weeks of emailing every neck-making luthier I could find, I ...

Re: Best inexpensive sustain pedals?

A friend of mine swears by the EHX Freeze, if actual hold-note-forever is what is meant by "sustain".

I didn't know Boss went and made another "feedbacker" pedal. That's...interesting.

Re: NGD: Blue Fender Toronado GT

All great info, thanks y'all. I don't wanna derail this thread, though. I was just curious.

I'll be making a separate thread soon enough in the Projects section once I get more bits ordered and in.

Re: NGD: Blue Fender Toronado GT

[quote It's definitely a heavier Fender guitar with that Mahogany body. Interesting, so it's the same thickness as a standard Fender, like a Strat? I have a project planned with a mahogany body as well, but I planned to make it thinner than usual to offset the weight difference. How much heavier, wo...

Re: NEW $150 Jazzmasters in all the colors.

I can't tell what bit of the body shape or pickguard they changed - but whatever it was it was something that made the Jazzmaster pretty and this very much unpretty. Grim. I was trying to put my finger on this as well, I think it's the slight variations on the pickguard, near the control area, and ...

Re: Best inexpensive sustain pedals?

There isn't really any such thing as a "sustain" pedal. There are things that are marketed as sustain pedals such as compressors or fuzz pedals. There was the Boss Feedbacker/Booster which I always thought was gimmicky and brilliant in equal measures. I have two of these. First Boss pedal...

Re: Best inexpensive sustain pedals?

I have no idea/opinion on the first two, but the Deadbeat is just a basic Big Muff clone, isn't it? EHX has put out like a ton of variants now on the BM, and it sounds like you really want the BM, so... I've been on a pedal spree lately, and between Reverb, ebay, and Craigslist I've gotten some stuf...

Re: NGD: Squier mustang!

The control plate has an impenetrable clear plastic film on it, like what they put on new pickguards. Except that I have only managed to peel off a couple of millimeters. It just otherwise won’t come off. Maybe lighter fluid can melt the adhesive? Lighter fluid might work, but if not, try denatured...

Re: Fretboard/Bridge radius Mustang/Jaguar

Those are really cool. I do already have a MM bridge though, I ordered extras when I did my last build just in case they stopped making them.

I may still pick one up from you at some point, those are really handy to have.

Re: Fretboard/Bridge radius Mustang/Jaguar

Okay, yeah so I am pretty sure the vintage Jags were 7.25", based on further reading. The newer ones in the last decade they did with 9.5", and that's what I kept finding for parts, so it confused me.

Thanks for the info, I just thought I was losing my mind for a moment.
