Just waiting on a shim to arrive, so I can finish putting the 78 Mustang together. I thought I had some, but didn't. Anyway, I took a few pics of markings.

Matching serial numbers in the neck pocket and on the headstock:

The neck heel is stamped J. Moreno, and measures 0.9125" at fret 1 and 0.95" and fret 12. The nut is 40.7mm

New pedal here. This is a clone of the DOD Carcosa Fuzz

OG DOD:

MIne has a graphic of what Lisa might look like without braces. A good amount of range on tap with this circuit. Gets very splatty with the gain turned all the way up and the two voices available on the toggle make it sound like two different pedals.

I love my Carcosa. It's the only fuzz that's always on my pedalboard.

So, last year I sold a really good Russian Muff clone with a Mids knob (Calico Stag Smasher) to OSGer panoramic. I only sold it, because I hadn't made it myself. I used that one quite a bit, so have been wanting to replace it with something similar. I ended up choosing the Mojo Hand FX Colossus, which is a Civil War type Muff, with added Mids knob and Bass switch.

OG Colossus:

My Colossus clone (Pedalpcb Colossal Muffin fuzz), featuring King Size Homer. I like it a lot. The bass switch can make it quite corpulent. Sounds awesome plugged into the Modet feT (Jimbo Burns). Would probably work great for bass too.

Almost done with the Mustang. Just dialing in the setup. Between the Dynamic vibrato and heel adjust truss rod, I'm in the "loosen the strings>make micro adjustment>retune the strings>measure>repeat" cycle. It's certainly playable now though, and sounds great. The out-of-phase+in-series setting always sounds so cool. More people should try that out.
