    So . . . Anyone know if the guy is ok or not? I see that there's a notice explaining why if you try and go to the actual website, but it just seems like it's a been a while.

    Agreed.

    I already had mine sent in for mods a couple of years ago, but have been having problems with some of the functionality. Was hoping I could send it back to him at some point to get some revisions done. Outside of him, I don't know of anyone else doing everything he offers. He was good to deal with when his site was open for business.

    hey so I'm talking to Brian Kinnatone (kinnatone pedals) now about doing these. I'll let you know what he says.
    noisekick fx can do some, lizard breath does the feedback loop and switches for 35$, Jhs does some, pedaldoctor did almost all of them, schoolcraft sells the dotted 8th, JHV3 does a few, T1M does some but I don't love the work he's done for me before and he doesn't really answer his emails and he shut his mod shop for now.

    etc

    but right now I'm hoping kinnatone is the hookup...will get back to you all

    Thanks for chiming in people.

    If Brian at Kinnatone is trying to introduce the mods done by R3FX into his offerings, check out R3FX's youtube channel. He demos most of the mods he does.

    I have send 6 months (12.10.2014) ago my Line6 MM Modeller to R3FX for repair and mod. Jim Rodgers offered me to do footswitch replacement, DC conversion, double preset, expression knob mods and the repair for 167$ including shipping back to europe. So, I payed through paypal, he told me that he's working on it and I never heard a word again. I asked hew every few weeks about the pedal and if he is stil alive. Nothing! Jim then answered my mail on april to let me know that he has to "...deal with a ton of medical issues and that he wil not screw me over...". I offered him to send back the Line6 Pedal abd refund my money, even if the job is not done. And again, no answer nothing... That's not the first time something like that happens to me. It's soooooooo annoying....
