Anybody made one for an ES-5 (or ES-8, for that matter)? Looking for some tips on components and wiring ... essentially, tell me how to do it! LOL

Thanks for any tips

Never built one for the ES5, but I have for the Timeline. For the ES5, you essentially want a clone of the BOSS FS6/FS7, right?

All you should need is two momentary footswitches, two toggle switches, and a stereo jack.

Should be pretty easy if you follow this guide:

Alternately, you could go for a dual momentary switch as a simpler alternative. Normally-open doesn't seen particularly useful for the ES5, so you'd be fine if you skipped out on the toggle switches. Plus you could always add them later if you decided that you needed them.
