So has anyone built their own axes here? I've got two I'm starting this weekend (from kits), an offset-V and a Mockingbird-style shape. The full kits come with everything, but I already bought different pickups and locking tuners to upgrade...I want to eventually build one from scratch...

As for Mods, I did one on an Ibanez TS-7 pedal, and I'll be taking apart my ancient Boss Metal Zone (damn its fizzy hide!) for kicks and seeing what I can do with it...

I mod quite a few of my pedals. Mostly start with a mod kit and then tweak from there. Monte Allums is a mod-kit King...haven't really had to tweak his as much as others!

I can tell it's going to be an addicting hobby. I'm going to work on my Boss DS-1 as well. I don't really use these pedals often anymore, so it'll be fun to see what tones I can squeeze out of them...

I'm into DIY modular Synth stuff but I've messed with pedals as well. Electronics is fun shit. Big time and money sucker though.

I built one of these fuckers not too long ago:

Not the ones pictured, but same circuit. Sounds dirty as fuck, and can do some nice auto-wah and tremolo type effects, or totally destroy the signal.
