    Pretty much it!

    See my signature for my rig - my GF wants to get me something and I am too lazy to sift through my mental GAS list as I sip on some brews before going to the bar - I hope to see an awesome wish list here tomorrow morning ;)

    Hopefully something I won't turn around in sell (within a week at least ;)), something functional / not gimmicky, something I don't have...

    You definitely need a delay. So you don't set your GF back too far money-wise, I'd say a TC Flashback, a CC, or an Aqua Puss. If she's willing to spend $200, I'd suggest that she buy a used ARDX20.

    Actually, let me and andrewruel confer.

    He's getting my BlueSky and I'm getting his WET.

    We'll let you know which one you should get :aok

    Thanks guys! Heading out to the bar now, but I appreciate it! Will be fun to read tomorrow.

    A delay is a good idea - I already have a Flashback, but mine drops one side of stereo which is apparently common (according to TGP) and haven't gotten a good answer from them about why since I asked a couple weeks ago.

    I was thinking about trying out the Stereo Wet - I like the Hardwire RV7, but, ya know... GAS (grass is always greener).

    PS - Probably won't spend $200 and I wouldn't ask that much from her, $120 is probably the max.

    If it were me, I'd go with something like cables, picks, strings, etc

    1. She won't notice if you're not using it
    2. You probably will use them
    3. If she picks out the wrong one, you can exchange it for the right one and she'll likely never know the difference

    If she buys you a pedal and you sell it, that's a recipe for disaster (more so with some GFs than others)...
