Reverse Engineered Centaur
« on: September 08, 2017, 05:55:33 PM »
Ok, I'm going to be honest.  I only built this because I wanted to use the reverse centaur graphic.  It came up in a thread about somebody on TGP (Outlaw), thus the Outlaw themed pot labels and "winch", which is a running TGP joke.

The board is an old layout I had in the bin of random boards.  I wasn't planning on boxing it, but it was there, so I put it in this box.

Haha. I appreciate the honest pedal naming. You're as honest as the overdrive itself!

That's hilarious.  The worst of both worlds.  Damned fine build though (as usual) and a definite double take for anyone sniffing around your board.

100% worth it.

Love it well done.  Where did you source those knobs?

This is so wierd. Why does it still has a pair of horse legs? In my mind reversed centaur would be a man with a horse head

Love it anyway:D

Yep, it's definitely not as anatomically correct as a normal reverse Centaur.  ;-)

It actually has 4 legs and 2 arms, which makes it extra awesome, IMHO.  It's such an absurd graphic, I just couldn't resist.
