I haven't posted many builds lately. This is one from a little while back. It's a high germanium fuzz I built for Jim Roth of Built to Spill. They played a 2 night stint here back in November. Jim hooked me and a friend up with backstage passes for both nights, so I wanted to build this for him as a thank you for the shows.
He was pretty stoked on it and really likes the way it sounds. Hell of a nice guy that has some building chops of his own. (as well as being a pretty bad ass guitar player too)
I had a great time at both shows. I've seen them before and they always put on a good show, but they are just killing it live right now. 3 guitar players! 8)

Broke into my old oversized component bin for this one.

I require pants on all my trannies. A little mystery is good. :lol: I like your description,Chris. If I ever get a website up, can I use that?

Thanks guys. Appreciate the kind words. The level of talent around here makes me work hard to keep up.

I've got 4 more similar ones like it I'm working on right now. While I enjoy making a little extra cash here and there and making people happy by building something they really like, I'm having a hard time finding any spare time to build myself lately.

...Maybe I should just quit my day job. :mrgreen:



..... I wish

For the record, some else described one of Danzink's builds and used that term. I am just recycling it!

I guess if you have Pants ON your Trannies then you have no use for Pot Condoms??

Then again has anyone ever done it with their Pants On??

Then again again if we are talking trannies the what does it matter? :shock:

DAM that is a nice build!!
