Build Reports / Re: #VFEFRIDAY KLEIN BOTTLE!!!!!

I ordered a board the other day. And The dual gang pots are included, as they are custom. But the project has another dozen or so pots that will need to be purchased

Man that looks good.  I currently have a few vfe builds half populated.  The blueprint was the one I'm most looking forward to finishing.  Maybe I'll have to place an order to mouser sooner than I thought.

looks good. I like the checking on the body.  I'm impressed at how well the gloss worked over the satin finish.  I don't have much experience doing partscasters but I know that it took me a while to get it dialed in to where I love it.

That looks amazing.  I love the etching.  I've never seen a wah build in anything but a wah shell.  I understand that it's an led/lrd combo for the wah sound but how exactly is it attached to the treadle.  If I can understand how you built the enclosure I can foresee myself making a small buffered volume pedal.

I just saw that the cabm had an update that added a silver face bassman preamp.  So it may sound decent on its own

I appreciate your feedback on the captor x.  I've been considering getting one since the original captor came out.  I love my amp tone but hate having to lug all my gear to gigs, especially since I mic my amp at every gig.  and I think the captor could fit in my pedalboard case.

If you do build the preamp pedals, I'm curious to see and hear the projects you build.  I have pondered if I should do a preamp + cab sim setup.

I know this is reviving a dead thread, but I have just solved the tick in my build.  My issue was a ticking or thump when in the standard mode on all wave forms when the depth was past 10:00.  I have build the vero version on tagboard and a pcb from delyk (cherry pie trem).  Both had the exact same issue.  I tried many of the suggestions above:
100n cap
jumping 33r resistor
shielding the input and output wire

none of these really worked for my issue.  The one that fixed it was placing a small cap (100pf) across the volume trim.

Sounds awesome! I look forward to seeing how it turns out

Wow, those look great!  I'm a sucker for reverb so the Grotto and the Hooke have me intrigued.  I haven't seen a becton project that's as flexible as the Grotto.

My main guitar for the past 8 years has been an mjt double bound tele.  I don't foresee myself ever parting with it. 

I bought mine from there eBay store as a body, neck, and hardware combo.  It was one of there no reserve bids so I saw what the body looked like before buying it.  The quality is good, though I have replaced most of the pieces on it.  But that wasn't due to quality as much as preference.  I switched out the neck, which was originally an all parts neck, for a warmoth one.  I found the original was to small for my liking in neck contour and nut width.  And I switched out the bridge and saddles for a compensated one.  So now I have a neck I prefer and a guitar that intonates better.  But since your not looking at a tele the intonation shouldn't be an issue. 

The stratosphere sells fender parts so you can pick and choose what you want.  I think they just buy guitars and sell them as parts.  Crazy parts is in Germany and they sell hardware.

That looks great.  Is there a chance that you will post a sound clip?

It looks awesome, how does it sound as a cleanish boost.  I'm trying to find something to go in front of my cab sim build.  So that I don't keep my wee one up all night
