The silly things i do.

I figured setting up a blog would be the easiest/fastest way for me to show custom work and interact directly.we'll see how it goes.
Here's a couple of current and recently completed projects just to get things rolling.
At the moment i'm in the middle of several projects (a couple of pedals,an amp or two and whatever various repairs roll in). i'm also in the middle of a long term "down time" project for myself but i'll talk about that later.
todays' pedal is a custom 2 sided affair for a great guy.he's been nice enough to put up with my "optimistic" completion time estimates and is just an all around awesome guy.
This is gonna be 2 pedals (a mosfet booster and silicon fuzz pedal voiced for use with a telecaster) in the same enclosure.the art is based on a woodcut by kawase hasui called "Moon at Magome" ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kawase_Hasui).He was known for his nature scenes and with good reason - they are stunning.
The enclosure is prepped, primed with self etching primer and then the art is done in a special acrylic paint and baked. the baking process darkened the colors a bit more than i would have liked but, i think it looks awesome.

Here's a couple of random completed projects just to kick things off.
