I very much love this new setup and get some killer Bobby type tones. A cmatmods deeelay in back with an Emma, Calinbread Serrano Picaso, Barber LTD SR, and Maxon PH-350. I know some folks swear by the flanger and I agree it was present alot but the swishy from the 350 really gets you there IMO.

Thanks, guys!

I can easily cop my favorite 70s years (74, 76) and an 80s Bobby with it!

It's all dependent on my pickups splits, how high I set the gain on the SMS and where I set my OD pedal!

For the trick, I think, is that the SMS is SS but sounds very much like a tuber. That's really awesome for me!

looks good! I noticed you got the rack mod! I thought of that one! Is there something wrong with the speaker that the dome is offset a little? I have seen this before and wondered about it. In fact I have a K120 on the way here that looks like it could be a little off center!

They sound good and look straight. A few things to consider:
- cell phone camera
- basement light is up and to the right in relation to the pic
- the cab was designed with about a 15 degree tilt
- I'm slightly off center


combine those and I think mystery is solved :lol:

I was hoping that was the case, the K that I bought is on the way but the guy said it was the pic that looked weird. Far out rig, looks familiar!!

Jonny, my #1 is still my Rice! It's my #1 for about 5 months now which is almost a record :)

That will VERY LIKELY be replaced soon, though. I sent Rich Hoeg a Tele and asked him for a graphite reinforced ModyGenesis style neck that is in the works!!
