Yes, indeed it is! Still the best distortion stomp box ever made.

That power supply ran everything on there (except the A/C-powered Flanger) -- no batteries!

I used to have a big pedalboard like that, now I have a rack. I should scan those pics and post them.

Ok, I finally scanned these old photos...

Here's my old pedal board, which no longer exists. The only things I still use from this are the MXR Flanger (now installed in my rack), the Cry Baby Wah and the Morley Volume pedal.

At home it rotates, right now it's the Ibanez FPGM, which I forgot to say the color (black w/ pink f-holes). the RG320QM has become the live staple, since she never goes out of tune or break strings and bring the Hamer as my backup. I bought the PRS because of Lerxst, damn him...a little more info in the PRS - it's a sunburst 24 fret with bird inlays and a hardtail, all in gold hardware with locking tuners. Bought it off ebay for 2 grand like 4 years ago, just cause Alex was playing PRS at the time, instead of rotating between PRS, Gibson & Fender. Had enough whammy bar guitars so I grabbed the hardtail, just like the Parker Fly standard.

Hey, I'm bored! Here's the guitars i've gotten rid of....

1. Memphis Strat, white w/ white pickguard and maple neck - wrong to get rid of it

2. Charvel in red with one humbucker and Kahler flcrum whammy - ugh!

3. Kramer focus 6000 in black with Floyd Rose - traded for the orange Ibanez

4. Recently, an Ibanez PF200 in sunburst that would not stay in tune, so I took everything off of it, kept the neck, threw the body away...figure I have back up parts for my other PF200 (the one I used to play 2112 in concert with...heh heh...) biggrin.gif

I see if I can do a full pic tomorrow, but it was a limited edition from fender last year...I was buying the 5 string Ibanez bass when I saw it at Guitar Center and I figured, for $350, what the hell...I didn't have a Strat so grab it. Basically, they took a Strat, in my case White w/ white pickguard, and threw several shades of blue paint at it while the body was spinning to produce the effect. They did a surf green with red and yellow paint that was just fugly so I went for the blue one.... biggrin.gif
