soo, i am that kind of person who decides to try and make stuff every so often

and in my lifetime i have so far made two supercool bits of gear for myself smile.gif

UNO/ THE MXR FLANGER COPY



haha well there was about 7 hours wasted, i knew it probably wouldnt work because it was too messy to work but i carried on anyway and all it does is heat up the plug that is wired to it lol

DUE/


i made this on this very day wink.gif it was supposed to be a single coil pickup, but it is more like a iron core with copper around it covered in electric tape laugh.gif what happened was that the end came off abit so i thught id pull on it and it just screwed up completely. it is a good electromagnet. not quite sure about it being a pickup though that was a quality 1 hour wasted smile.gif


so guys, use your time productively if you arent playing guitar, make some coolass guitar accessories smile.gif
and if it works, thats even better laugh.gif


just thought id share that anyway-rather pointless-but never the less....

QUOTE ("Steve Vai")
Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.
