  • A Custom Guitar... Check pictures!

    It took me 3 month to make this guitar...

    It was a cort effector, I replaced the internal electronics with real stomp box effects.

    The guitar comes with EMG pickups 81 +81.
    Built in effects are:

    boss effects: GE-6 Equalizer MT2 Metal Zone CS-3 compression sustain RV-3 reverb+echo PS-5 octave+pitch shifter AC-2 acoustic simulator

    Ibanez effects: CF7 chorus+flanger WD7 Weeping demon (wah)

    Pulsar tremolo (variable wave shape)

        with all those effects are you running a power cable tied to the guitar cord?

          Seems like it would be highly confusing on stage.

                I have a place for batteries...

                Of course you don't use all the effects at once... perhaps 4 or 5 at a time... so 4 9v batteries are enough, and yes it has a power plug to save battery life.

                For people who wonder how the wah is working, I managed to incorporate a mechanism the responds to the guitar direction and it really works so beautifully


                Yes, it looks like a beast lol

                I still need to find a name for it, I don't wanna call it "Cort Effector"

                    Yes it works 100%, and I can't keep my eyes off of it lol

                    I forgot to mention that I added a "line in" in order to use the guitar as an effect board for other guitars... I can plug my strat in it and use all the effects....


                    Really cool thing... and not confusing at all, the effects controls are in reach, not on the ground...

                          I have played heavier guitars... but I must admit, it is heavy...

                          there was no way to make it weigh less, I always wanted a guitar like that, and now I have one.

                            Red Scorpion, you're a genius. You're probably slightly mad, but you're still a genius.

                            That is some damn inventive work. :thu: Nice job.
