Onboard guitar delay

Now that ebay item is only up for one more day so check the Guitar Fetish Store

Thats cool 8)
Now I wouldnt put it on my "metal dude" :twisted: guitar, tee hee
but i have a 2000 model Fernandes Revolver in the closet i havent touched in a longass time, and another one at my parents house out of state,
One of them is in drop C, so i was going to throw in a new bridge humbucker and make that the sludgy doomy chunk chunk machine,
The one in the closet i suppose i could throw the delay on there and make this thing a crazy noise machine!
Read up on the Fernandes sustainer system.

Now the reason i stopped using them was i got tired of the battery draining, it drains faster than other active picups i have seen,
I was changing the battery every 3 weeks,
Thats annoying sometimes when you just want to pickup the guitar and pound away, then suddenly it starts to "eeeeeehhhhhhhzzzzzzzpoooop..."

However if i turn these into specialty guitars it would be worth it,
have a drop C delay guitar, and a standard E delay guitar...
yeah thats cool 8)

Man the new 2007 revolvers are ugly :lol: That headstock has to go!

how can they sell an analog delay for 50 some bucks? no enclosure, but still..550ms, you could probably modify it with some vacrtols and build a VC delay module for a Euro rack system for cheap....i'd like to get a look at the other side of that board...

the one drawback i see in putting that in a guit is always having delay first in a signal chain....

Yeah i wouldnt want it on my only, or my primary guitar,
but haveing delay parameters inches away from my picking hand
could provide some interesting possibilities :) Especially with the sustainer!
Man 8)
I e-mailed him and he has "no idea if that would fit that(revolvers) guitar"
but its cheap enough that i will probly buy one and then eyeball it when it gets here.
