I thought it would be cool to have a thread for the DIY'ers here to post some of their guitar related DIY projects.

 

I've been slaving over a hot soldering iron this past week or so. I finished building a pedal for Jeff-7 (which I won't post), built a slightly modded Fulltone OCD clone, a Zvex Woolly Mammoth clone, and a Big Muff based mainly on the "Civil War" Muff, with a few cap values of the green Russian Muff thrown in and a mids control (waiting on a couple parts to finish the Muff).

 

I'll post pics soon. Just wanted to post this thread before I forgot about the idea haha

All your builds look great especially some of the pedals. I am also making a few pedals but I decided to go a different way and I am making mine upside down in the enclosure so that I can custom buil

Thanks Damian!   Added the LEDs to that dual dirt/boost pedal and took one last pic before I sent it away   Sounded so great with my SG!

Yes, it is 4Site electronics. Most enclosures you can buy I think just a minimum of 10. It's when you get into knobs where you have to buy 50, or resistors where its around 200 I think.   Like Dub s

sorry for the terrible lighting and picture quality. It's dark and my iPhone camera sucks.

The guts right there are that OCD clone. It sounds really awesome. It has kindof a slightly "chewy" sound that I dig.

 

I'm going to wire it to be switchable between standard clipping and LED clipping but as it is here it's basically a standard OCD with a different pot value for the gain control. The gain control has a bit less gain on tap but a bit better control over what gain is there. It has more than enough gain for what I want it to do.

When I bought this it was a 97 Les Paul Studio with an EMG Zakk Wylde pickup set in it and all black hardware. I yanked the pickups and put them up on Ebay. Installed gold Gibson Dexule tuners, gold humbucker rings and a gold adjustable BadAss bridge. For guts I installed a set of my Obsession Bolero humbuckers and wired them up to their own volume pots skipping the tone pots that I never use.
