TX_Slinger ... what was that, you like it's Pantone and colour stain
Lol, it was a piece already salvaged from another piece of furniture in the 1800's to brace a table that wasn't using a table leaf. I have the matching one also. Having the second one same room makes the tone too dark so i leave it in the garage.
I do like it when you something old, even if of little value in itself, can be put into a context of some sort and then to good use again.
Can't remember the exact details but in the last year or two happened across a radio interview with a UK luthier who was commenting on how he heard of an old carpenters shop being cleared and acquired a pile of Cedar that dated back to the late 1800s.
There's just something about that sort of back-story which would increase my interest in a guitar.
I have some nice old pine studs i salvaged from a 1920's house in Corpus Christi, TX, which makes them probably 175-200 years old since the wood being used back then was old growth. As soon as I get a plunge router and an electric plane I'll be making that my first body build (hopefully 2-3 guitars). Its got awesome nails holes and everything. Wife's not going to let me use these doors that were salvaged from Mexico. Not sure why, they'd make a great pedalboard...
My light-duty board made from a repurposed masonite clipboard, powered by a One-Spot.
At the far left is a GGG BSIAB2 pedal kit I just completed - probably the best sounding high-gain distortion effect I've ever used. Highly recommended.
I'm glad you didn't delay on such a big decision, because I dig the vibe!
My latest build, I LOVE it.
less is more, less is more, less is more, less is more, less is more, less is more, less is more,
How do you like the MXR Univibe?
Nice! Do you use od3 as a booster for the sd1?

This little one is for my solid body mandolin. Taming the highs can be a challenge. Think I’ve cracked it.
Fish and chips eq - cry baby mini - soul food - Mooer yellow Comp - ehx memory toy.
Knobs set to the room i’m in. Sounds pretty good. Into usually a tweed blues jr.

I like it well enough. It seems reliable and quiet. The vibe pushbutton gives you a pitch-shifting vibrato which can sound cool at higher speeds. MF, Amazon, etc. rate it at 4 to 5 stars, and that's where I put it too. Sounds best with bass and mid pickup positions, at low sweep speeds.
If price and space were no object I would have bought a Fulltone. But I only had YouTube to audition vibe pedals. I liked the low quantity of knobs and features on the MXR compared to other brands. Simple operation.
I had a Voodoo Labs Microvibe on a board years ago. It sounded good, but I found that vibe sounds were not easily usable in a commercial disco and Motown party band. For my current blues-rock-jazz experimentation, vibe sounds great. So musical context is something to consider.
Hope this helps.
I'm up to the most gain channels I've had and the least modulation. Just bought the EHX Hot Wax today.

have made a few changes; this will be submitted for judgment elsewhere. 5 or 6 is all I use; I have (had?) a weekly house band gig for 10 years. This is what it's come to.

Added the ehx good vibes. Love it!
