I cant believe that there are pedal scalpers, a weird thought to me and those people are scummy.

No different than the people that get the pre-sale tickets for the latest video game consoles for $450-500 and then turn around and sell them for $800-900 when they are first released.

We have people in my area that are buying up all of the Lysol cleaning products and re-selling for 2-3x the price online. Pittiful!

That was an issue here for a little while, but then people started getting busted.

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Haha. Not here! Hell, we have private citizens selling 60-day temporary registrations for ANY vehicle (must have a cash app) for $150  :o

Tell me how THAT works?

That's capitalism for you. Where there's insane demand for something, somebody will find a way to profit from it. Although in the case of the gaming console, a totally unnecessary product, you get what you are willing to pay for. Early adopters always pay full price if not more. Which is why I will never be one.

I assume the temporary tags for sale is probably somewhere tax abusive like Virginia where not only is personal property taxed like a mofo but if you get delinquent on anything they tack on that DMV stop that keeps you from renewing as well 

I'd also like to note exactly how off-topic this has gotten, in case anyone is keeping score

Things haven't gotten too far off topic. We haven't brought up trapping armadillos yet.

Good point, thanks Chris. So how do you go about trapping an Armadillo?

If there ever was a job best left to professionals, it's that one.

Crazy Tube Circuits Constellation CV7003. Check that one out.
It absolutely obliterates the Boss in this "boutique limited edition" fuzz category.
This is my signature, et al.

Im not surprised this costs $350. Look at all the other Waza stuff that boss released. Its a money grab. When I saw that this was going to be released I pretty much wrote it off. Just like the Zvex / Chase Bliss pedal. Nothing against those guys but their prices are WAY too high and I will never own one of their pedals because of it.

Yeah, I have doubts that Ill ever spend that much on a guitar again, let alone a pedal.
