    They're all soooo clean... but I have to go with Rackdoctor. Those cable runs are just a thing of obsessive-compulsive beauty!

    As someone who worked for an electrician in college, I have to agree.

    So tidy!

    I've seen RackDoctor's board on Youtube. He does a couple of demos of each Pedal. Not only is the pedalboard clean it sounds amazing. Really tight tone!

    Y'all know mine would be as clean as a gynecologists chuff if it stayed at home all day.....Unfortunately that's not the case. Mines alive and kicking and in some cases minging.
    This is good inspiration for me to clean my act up though......

    What's funny about Rackdoctor is that I was considering making him ineligible, as he never signed up for the competition. But he submitted pictures, which makes him better in my book that the 35 people that signed up and didn't submit anything.

    Nice job guys! I thought my board was clean until I saw these. I am going to be re-wiring mine tonight. I got some Lavaman cables at NAMM...can't wait to get them on there.

    I think what makes RackDoctor's so impressive is that he didn't route anything under the board.

    Everything is out in the open and CLEAN!

    That's just inspirational.

    I need to rework my board to clean up some of my routing and powering issues.

    Ugh.

    It never ends.

    Yeah...all of these boards are amazing. I'm a big fan of USC96's board - the pedals aren't too cluttered and it strikes me as a really manageable board in a live setting. I'm always trying to hit an effect with my big toe while not disturbing the settings on my other pedals.

    But I have to agree, RackDoctor's board is (as was already said), so beautifully OCD! I'm trying to figure it all out - a little help please! It gives me hope for my board, which is just a mess.

    Rackdoctors board is nice, but I wonder if he did it himself. Im very impressed if he did it himself, but if not, than he looses a few points from me.

    Astigtigas for this one. Impecable wiring and a white psilocybe to boot. Looks fun.

    Thank you everyone. I am a bit compulsive when it comes to my gear.
