:hihi: "Dial F for Fuzz" is a great name! :award:
That was courtesy of our followers on Facebook and Instagram. We held a contest for the board name, the winner got a free board. We'll be doing more of those name contests in the future. We have some sharp followers, they come up with some great names, Don't know which is tougher sometimes... coming up with a name ourselves, or choosing from the entries. :hihi:

Guitar renovation complete. Floyd Rose hole filled and a lot of other work too. Gotta love a mouldy fretboard :puke:

Ages ago I did something similar with an "Epiphone by Gibson" Firebird 500. They were from some weird 80s era when Gibson acquired Steinberger and started putting Steinberger trems into stuff? Weird. Anyway it came out okay.

Grrr - had a fiddly time with this 70s Soviet fuzz, with pcb traces lifting and old wires breaking, but i eventually fitted a mini footswitch and true bypass wiring in place of the clunky original switch (a type that was apparently commonly used in table lamps in the USSR!)
I've had it for a few years but only just got around to it:

Looks really cool! Lots of people seem to want to take vibrato off guitars at the moment.
