I'm very surprised that I can't think of another guitar with an eq system like this. EMG has something but it's truly different. I wonder why it's not commonly used?

I know the guy that built this for me is looking to start selling these from a website. He also wants to sell it in a box like MK's. The hardest part of this system right now is finding the correct potentiometers. The ones I was able to get are NOS Ibanez parts but they're really getting hard to find. I think Eaton and I are the last ones to get the remaining pots in this guys private stock. He's looking at getting the pots custom built and then he'll be all set. I was really shocked that he sells the system at a really reasonable price. The board itself is the same price as what Jerry guys are paying for their buffers.

Cool guitars and thread. Dozin, this one got me to Search for Modulus also over at the Gear Page and find your posts on these fine guitars there, too. :smile:

I just got one made in a pedal as well! I started it over a year ago, had the board made in Germany using all the NOS Ibanez parts, to the specs! It also has the correct pots, I lucked out! I then bought pedal components and sent it all to Gary Brawer in San Fran last summer....I finally got it from him a few weeks ago! He had it finished awhile back and forgot all about it, so it sat on his shelf awhile. It works and sounds phenominal!! I wish I had regular access to a computer, so I could post pictures. I did pay the same for my board, as it costs for a Waldo buffer.

Finish process? I'm not sure I know what you're asking.
