    Just built my buddy a custom ABBA pedal.

    2 ins with 2 outs. AB/BA.

    Select between two guitars going to either two amps or an amp/tuner combo.

    Sometimes I just amaze myself.

    After tax and shipping and stuff, I would say it cost about $45-50 to build, not including time drilling and soldering and painting.

    But its all worth it because is top of the line footswitches (not those cheaper blue shits, but Carlin and Switchcraft.

    Does it have true bypass if I don't wanna sound like ABBA?

    lol...

    No, I just got that box on accident. I thought I ordered the 1590B, in aluminum, but instead, ordered the 1590AB...'A' being for a small ass box, not aluminum, and 'B' being for black...even though I knew better...what I needed was a 1590BBB....it was a long night.

    But then I realized that I could cram it all in there and not have to go through the hassle of shipping it back...plus the black powder coat was just awsome looking, and after I did a computer mockup of the layout decided it was a perfect fuck up.


    But I do use my volume on my guitar, I just like to have the option of a quick and easy change when using one channel amps. Sort of a makeshift channel switch if you will.

    Damn - I wish I had seen that earlier - I need something exactly like that!

    I've ordered two Boss switching boxes instead - but have realised that I won't be able to use them in the wau I wanted to. I've got two seperate guitars going to different channel of my amp and I want to switch between guitar1 going to input one and guitar2 going to input2, but all going through the same effects.

    What I in-fact needed was one Boss switcher and one of those Morley switchers.

    But it looks as though your handy box would be better at the start of the chain...
    How much would you ship one to the UK for?

    This Boss one would let you do what you want, you seem them regularly on Ebay, sure not as cool as one of OUtlaws boxes.................

    here is the link to the use of the boss pedal www.bossarea.com

    Good luck
