Yeah, I probably would too to be honest.

On a separate topic, because I'm too lazy to move over to the general thread, does anyone know anything about dust getting into pedals and messing with them. I swear my Whammy turned itself on earlier and was then changing settings by itself before I could turn it off, haha! Is there any way of using that contact cleaner stuff for guitar switches or something? I don't even know how to open a pedal like that up, but I don't really want to have to get a replacement. I can't afford one anyway, so I'll have to manage if there's no quick fix.

WhammyIV? They all go funny eventually it seems. Apparently it's the tiny inductors that go bad.

DT. No way of resolving it then?

Does the V have this problem? I had the IV for 6 years and had no problems other than calibrating constantly.

My Whammy IV also has some issues... When I plug it in everything's fine, but after a minute or so it just... turns off? The LED's go out, but the signal still travels through and reaches the output (i.e., I can still play, but the Whammy just doesn't do anything anymore). Then when I remove the power and plug it back in again, it works... for a minute. Weird.

Edit: I've had it for about 10 years though, I think.

saw that earlier and thought it was yours. That finish is really cool.


Re Bs' whammy - could the problem be from moisture getting into the pedal if it's humid? I've had a few problems with the DT (mainly the input jack repeatedly coming loose) but nothing as strange as that.

I can't wait to butcher some Hendrix songs on it for Jaicen.



How is he doing that without a fuzz factory?

Frown Manson Pre-owned issues

I purchased the pre-owned MA-2 EVO S that was up on mansonguitarworks.com recently and unfortunately it has some additional body damage that was not described in the listing. I'm bummed because it's a sweet guitar.

I've emailed Manson and it's been crickets after two weeks. Anyone have tips for getting in touch with them?

What's the damage exactly?

And depending on where you're located, it might make more sense to phone them.

James, thanks for the reply. It's cosmetic damage on the body - a couple extra dings and a scuff on the finish. I'm mainly concerned with the ones pictured in this album. https://imgur.com/a/CBoIovL

Calling is a good idea. I'm located in the USA and to be honest I didn't even notice the phone number prominently displayed on their website until you mentioned it.

Generally I wouldn't be too surprised by stuff like that on a second hand guitar (unless advertised as flawless) That's just me though.

Also, as you're in the USA and the guitar has a rosewood fretboard, were there any signs of the box being opened and inspected by US plant and wildlife or whatever it's called? It appears that they're fairly careful (unlike the TSA...) when inspecting shipments, but you never know.

But yeah, I'm sure MGW will make it right. If you decide to call them, just remember the time difference.

K&T is quiet

Got a question regarding MIDI screens... if it's plugged into a whammy, does the X/Y axis affect the foot rocker itself, or can a different axis change the setting of the pedal?
