great looking etches!
Crush your enemies, see them driven before you and to hear the lamentation of their women!
That is good!

Incredible as always Graham. We need to go for a pint at the Dorset so I can see these in person!

Thanks for the kind words guys, had the Tonebender in studio over the weekend and sounded fantastic!

Haha cheers man, I used to drink in the Dorset a fair bit a few years ago! I'm just off Palmeira Square so tend to frequent the ale haunts over that way a bit more now! Beer and pedals is always good though, give me a shout!

You should start etching custom pickguards for people. All this artwork you come up with would look awesome on a guitar as well.
Why don't you just move to Nevada?
Because I heard it was a bad part of Mexico. This guy doesn't even know his geography!

That's a cool idea man! Not sure how I would go about cutting the ali to shape though?

Thanks man :) I just use metallic spray paint as opposed to powder coating, I have to admit it chips off pretty easily though even with several layers of clear coat, would really like to know if there is a way to improve the durability of the paint.

thanks for the info ;)
im using metallic spray paint as well for enclosures so far and yes you have to use transparent spray to seal the color!
question: that means you spray your enclosures and then apply the rest of your etching procedure?

The spray painting comes near the end, basically etch the box, clean it up, then spray paint it, sand off the top to reveal etch, then clear coat.
