    aka JRockett Hightop clone, Darlington pair of 2N708's in the gain stage. Stalled on a 9V Zener, swore I had some, and clear lacquer for the decal.
    I thought the last one was hard to drill for 6 pots (Talons clone), this has 5 pots and two switches. Thankfully the build template was right on, didn't have to use the reamer at all.

    A little too tight for most of the 3PDT breakout boards I have, plus the LED is already board mounted.

    Got some 9V zeners, put on the decal. Because I left the box primer, the decals don't lay down as nice, hopefully this third try will look decent.

    This one is different from other OD/boosts I've built, sounds pretty raw.

    Knobs are temporary until I can get an order in.
