    Hey everyone! I've been waiting on this pedalboard for a loooooong time and it's finally on it's way. I'm too stoked to get it so I wanted to share the pics in advance of its arrival! You may ask why there is extra space, but I wanted a little extra in case of expansion for 1 - 2 pedals (The most I'd really ever expand by) or if I wanted to switch out smaller pedals for larger pedals. Anyways, it looks incredible and I'll finally get to see it in person in a couple more days!

    Great looking board. I've had a trailer trash one for several years and only recently heard about these when I started looking for a smaller board. These look killer, very well thought out. I can't tell if the case is pretty really protective or not but the closure system looks cool. Enjoy it.

    Thanks man! Just so you're aware, they take a pretty dang long time to complete...I'd say somewhere in the ballpark of a year. Just a heads up if you needed a small board in a jiffy

    Nice. I just went to their website and it said they were not taking orders.

    Ahh, ya I'm not surprised. My order was actually supposed to have started in October but then got pushed three months to January. Luckily, Michael is very concerned with keeping orders on time which is probably why he stopped orders for right now. He's also extremely communicative if there is any hiccup at all in the process and emailed me the first day of October to let me know of the delay so I was never in the dark. When he opens up orders again, I highly recommend them for their customer service alone.

    Yea I feel ya. I didn't really need something in a hurry so I was OK waiting but for most people that's going to be a killer wait time. I'm surprised it took so long because once my spot in the queue came up he literally completed the board in about a week or so. Just goes to show how many orders he must be dealing with for those kind of wait times.

    Very nice board. I like the clean, classic, simple look that it has.

    Congrats! Helweg's is THE BEST. The quality of his materials and workmanship are above all the others. Fantastic attention to detail inside and out.

    By the way, I've been gigging mine for about a year and other than a few very minor nicks, it still looks new.
    Excellent choice!

    This is what I've heard from every single owner of a Helweg Pedalboard and why I decided to put down the cash to get one. Literally no bad remarks on them besides the wait time. Can't wait to have it back home so I can check it out in person :)

    Loved my custom Helweg board, and that one is super sweet! I've been wanting another for a long time, but I just can't do that year wait time.

    I'd get laughed at if I showed up with something like that.

    gorgeous!

    Extra space should never be a worry.

    Hey to each their own! I don't think it looks particularly laugh-worthy as it just looks like a regular black pedalboard with some neat features and kept tidy.
