Yes I know, another guitar related project (I do also have other kinds of projects going on lately, hence the scarce posting and the lack of concrete achievements in the field of guitar/pedal making)! This one will require new tools and the uncovering of old and unused skills...
You probably already know that Devi Ever produces extremely interesting fuzz boxes - I will acquire one very soon, well as soon as possible -, now she's busy with a cartridge based effect platform, available for one, two or three cartridge. A kind of anti-iStomp, its open-sourceness will allow anybody to conceive and release cartridges to be used on it - as much boutique makers (including Ohnono whose Chk Chk Boom I enjoy very much) as DIYers, and of course the first cartridges will be Devi's own very cool fuzz devices.
The project looks for funding with the help of Kickstarter and new backers are welcome, please go have a look and maybe join!
Is it vain to have a personal guitar blog - one more guitar blog? Probably...
But when I started to pay more and more attention to my guitars - lifetime companions and much more than mere working tools -, I've been quite happy to gather information on the net, on blogs, forums, fan sites, etc... So maybe some people will benefit in a way or another from this one.
And maybe also one day someone will see and appreciate my design work and ask me to design guitars for his project or his company - feel free to contact me if you're interested!

A sunburst Stratocaster walks into a bar, orders a beer and takes a stool next to a hot-looking Les Paul Goldtop, who's sipping an umbrella drink. The Strat leers at the Les Paul for several minutes and then says, "Hey, that's some set of humbuckers you got on you, darlin'."
"You're not getting any feedback off of me with a pickup line like that," the Goldtop says indignantly.
