God Shined The Light Upon Me

Post by SSgt93 » Fri Jul 26, 2013 6:14 pm

I have been searching for a 1966 for AGES, and was finally blessed with one. I posted on a fuzz thread that the 1966 was one pedal I have wanted and couldn't find (TGP, some good things do come from there, don't ruin this for me :oldlol: ) and a guy PM'd me saying his buddy in London was selling his but he doesn't frequent forums and gave him my email (i'm sending the guy a 'thank you' gift). Anyways, through emails etc IT HAPPENED! She just arrived a few ago. Excited!? You fucking know it!!! Here are a few pics.

P.S. Keep the faith if you are looking for one, your time will come. This 1966 forum also needed a little love. :dance:

I damn near bought an original VOX a few weeks ago, and still may. I hear all the good ones are snatched up and a few less stellar ones are floating around. I hate not trying a pedal before buying it. It feels good to finally have a 1966.

Of course, after buying this, I did see a 1966 on TGP a week ago, Lucky #13 for a nice price as well. It may still be there and was not advertised well. Search 1966 in the pedal emporium.

It have yet to try a Rooster and may add one. I hear nothing but great things about them.

Owning #13 1966 would be sweet for the number alone LOL. It's really a good deal and became available after I bought mine. Maybe I will add a 2nd 1966..... or he will give me a package deal :crackjam:

The 66 is one of my all time favorite pedals...especially the silicon version. Congrats on the score! You're going to love it!

1966 is what brought me here in the first place. I've got originals too, but there'll always be a special place for the 1966.
Dear Bongo, No.
Good deals with all these guys
