    Very cool, but I wouldn't include a wah on the actual board. Some people don't always like their wah pointing straight

    I'd buy one if it were reasonably priced. However, with all those independant BYOC kits, time, and other supplies, it would likely be over $400!

    Ibanez did something like this in the 80's. I'd love to have something simple like that for fly gigs!

    Rodger Mayer's new Vision Wah does that.

    If you need someone to build the custom chassis to hold your BYOC pedals give me shout.

    Cool idea, If you want to spray the chassis with bed liner material let me know. That stuff is indestructible.

    I love those kinds of boards too. i tried a Carl martin Quatro a while back and liked it. the concept is simple, exactly like the old Ibanez or yamaha 'multi' effects units of yore.

    Very cool idea. Can you just buy the boards/components from BYOC to cut down on your costs a bit as you do not need the enclosures/jacks/power jacks? You could probably get your enclosure made at a local metal shop, too for not too much money. Keep us posted!

    BYOC only sells the full kits or the PCBs. You'd have to go to allparts or somewhere like that to get all the electronic components. That board does look awesome though.

    Why not just add the innards of a good tuner to the board. On switch for silent tuning, and a small patch to display the LED and a couple of strobes? Could be the finishing touch!
