Hey all. I just finished making a head for my Twin. I performed the surgery tonight!!I posted some pictures of what my new rig will look like.( kinda) I still plan on making a smaller version of the wooden rack like Hard Truckers.They are in the folder "some gear" on the myspace link below.

Why are the guitars backwards?! :lol: :lol:

Very nice work, dude!

What other pedals are do you have routed through you GCX?

I'm always surprised when I see the GCX not right next to
the pedal drawer but I suppose everyone has their reason...

Its all the way on the top because i used to have a baltic birch board mounted on the front with my pedals, ala Garcia's 90's rig. Just never moved it after i took the pedals off.

I run my qtron, Phase 90, SD-2, OC-2, TS-9 silver mod, boomerang, ADA 2fx( sometimes)

I'm really downsizing my gear though. I'm going to scale back to the Garcia Rig, with some random pedals.

Ah! Very nice! And nice going with selective pedals!

With that great guitar and amp I'm sure it sounds great dry!

I pondered doing the pedals on front thing but then calculated in the weight and said forget it. It's for the best, actually. I found "my settings" and don't touch them anymore! Plus a I am able to use an "FX Rack" which is shallower!

(But I secretly wish I had a front-displayed pedals! Shh don't tell!)

The rack i want to build would be less deep. I can only join dovetails up to 11.5 inches. Most rack effects are 10" ( I think) What i want to do is make one for 4 1u rack units( Korg, Furman, ADA 2fx, GCX)
And 1 slightly angled shelf and the base for my 5 pedals.( I really don't use the boomerang that often at gigs). It basically would be the Garcia rack, just not as tall or as deep. I would make it 2' tall x 20" wide by 11.5 " deep. Thats next!!
