    Guitar players are idiots.
    Here is the proof.
    I feel horrible about myself.

    True. But don't beat yourself up. Same could be said about any hobby. Fishing, scotch, boats, bicycles, running. You name it. At least this one's creative (though that pedal is more expensive than 2 of my electrics + my lap steel . . .).

    What everyone else apparently does - wait a week and try to flip it for more.

    I feel guilty for just paying $200 for a Zendrive but I think it's almost worth it.

    Sub $70.

    Is it a Klon? Nope. Probably doesn't sound quite as good to some. But it's probably almost as good to many. Did I mention it's $70?

    I am stirring it up, I know. I'm sure there's someone out there who is saving $2k right now who wouldn't even consider a brand new Soul Food or any other Klon derivative or facsimile. More power to them.

    The question is: How much did GC pay for it?

    That's what I was going to post. Even though I think the Klon prices are stupid, I actually feel kinda sorry for the guy who probably got $900 for it.

    There's boutique pedals, and there's REAL boutique pedals.
    While in GC, you could have stated...^ that and asked, "guess which this is?" :D

    Awww, don't beat yourself up, now.

    What he said. I understand they're akin to owning George Washington's left testicle, but where did all the mystique come from?
