Re: Guild Polara - anyone played one?

Re: Ditto+

I used to have a Ditto x2 - big fan of the TC pedals. I never used this functionality, but it's .WAV files apparently.

One of my graduates makes guitars now, and there's a Iceman Jr. bubbling under in my future maybe.

Re: pictures of your gear here

A PEDANT WRITES: please remember that there are two (maybe more?) Mooer Octave pedals - the Pure Octave and the Tender Octaver. Only the latter is a POG clone.

I'd just been banging on to Freddy how alarmed I was to discover my ('burst-ish) Les Paul was my dream guitar; this image alarmingly on the money.

Ooh, we're phasertwins!

Having the same pedal in two different colourways on two separate boards is amongst the coolest things I've ever seen. Kudos to you.
