    Pedal graphics

    Actually I have never used a laser to etch a pedal, but I did recently get a Laser for my 3d Printer, so maybe in the future. The etching was done using a resist (usually a silk screen or hand drawn art) in a bath of Acid. It was a totally toxic process and I no longer use that method for...

    2016 AVRI Jazzmaster with Chinese Dragon!

    Hi Ron, Thanks for chiming in, I know the person I got it from had nothing to do with it. I have done some searches for Foo Dog stickers, decals, line art, tattoo samples etc. and can't find any match yet. The marking under the rear left leg looks like a signature of the artist (which could...

    2016 AVRI Jazzmaster with Chinese Dragon!

    If there are more out there like mine it would be a good indicator that it left the factory with the Foo Dog Mod already installed.

    2016 AVRI Jazzmaster with Chinese Dragon!

    Got this today from my Fender rep after sending him the pis. (I am an authorized warranty repair for amps), Hey John, Woah!! That’s crazy! I have added in Tech Support to run this down and see if there is any info we can find on it. Stay tuned, as we are extremely busy. Many thanks!

    2016 AVRI Jazzmaster with Chinese Dragon!

    I'm leaning toward the image was there when it was sold as new but I'm still investigating, the person I got it from bought it used at GC in Hawaii so I'm going to do some more research and also show it to some local offset Guru's here in Seattle.

    2016 AVRI Jazzmaster with Chinese Dragon!

    They mostly think its a re-fin, I think it's a Factory mishap. I am in Seattle and there are a couple vintage guru's here I can show it to. I don't think it's a refin, it measures exactly 1 5/8 thick at the neck joint with digital calipers with precision down to 1/132. I've seen some pretty good...

    Love for the Fromel Go! pedal

    I don't think it's ever been a secret, but most guitar players would not know what to do with controls labeled Bias and T-Filter any more than they would Thing1 and Thing2 and I love Dr Seuss. Perhaps I should do like Boss and make a Bass version in brown and the only difference will be the...

    Love for the Fromel Go! pedal

    Basically it's the distortion circuit from an Electra Guitar with some added love (bias and T-Filter). IMHO the last truly "novel" design in analog peals was the Bucket Brigade Delay back in the 80's, since then all analog pedals are pretty much re-mixes/improvements of previous designs.

    Love for the Fromel Go! pedal

    I think I have that Go! back in my shop (saw it used at a local shop and bought it), was yours an etched graphic (radiohead) or copper hammertone? If memory serves I only made 2 PTP, I have the copper one.

    2016 AVRI Jazzmaster with Chinese Dragon!

    The image is so damn perfect there is no way it was not intentional. It looks to me like it was there before the finish but I'm sure not going to sand it down to find out. The GOT Latimer Lion is similar but this is definitely not GOT art.

    Originally had a tort guard (which I still have), Here are pics of the neck and pocket prior to my ownership. I think Javier may have some explaining to do?
