    I want to throw that guitar in the fire and put the designer in stocks in the town square where people can throw rotten eggs and vegetables at him.
    That's kinda harsh. The fretboard is pretty sexy TBH.

    NO. Had a couple Ovations with a high setup and sold them as soon as I could get rid of them. Play with a medium setup, Ibanez lately, Takamine before that.

    Only acoustic I've ever played with a perfect setup was a 1976 Fender DelMar, that would be similar to what Glenn Frey played for "Take it Easy." I've been looking for one of those for 20 years.

    He seems pretty happy. Personally I'm not a fan of that cawk shaped control plate but otherwise it's not really offensive. Ibanez has zero interest in cloning Fenders so the new line was always going to have a few polarizing tweaks. More importantly I can't hear any difference between the Chapin and the Ibanez when he's playing them. I'll bet that roasted neck feels great and build quality is superior to a $2500 Fender.

    I've never been a huge fan of the way fender's look and feel especially strats. The sound is perfect in the right setting but I don't like the way the necks feel or the string spacing. I prefer the way Les Paul's and 335s feel and play. If I ever feel the need to get another strat it'll be a partscaster Frankenstein that I put together myself

    They have an all black one that doesn’t have that control plate, comes with jumbo stainless frets too. Not bad looking at all.

    For what they’ll be charging for his instrument (artist prestige), with medium
    , non stainless frets and that control plate are a no for me.

    I am curious to try one of those AZ necks though

    I understand no stainless frets with reissues of vintage guitars but this obviously isn't a vintage guitar. Digging in and doing a lot of bending with 13s would quickly burn through frets so I think they dropped the ball there with the production model. I agree the one below is the best of the bunch. Also new for 2021 is a Martin Miller 7 string.

    Anyone have experience with swapping out the footswitch on a pedal? My Carcosa Fuzz has one that's failing.

    I've never soldered anything.

    Soldering switches is easy because the pegs on the back side of switches have a little hole you can just make a j-hook with the wire shape and thread it through and just hold the iron to the wire/lug and melt some solder on it and you're good.

    This assumes the switch is not soldered to a PCB, which is a whole different headache.

    Is it under warranty? The problem with a lot of pedals these days is the footswitch along with jacks and pots are mounted directly to the PCB. No matter how well they try to design these things there will always be some degree of flex and parts will break faster not to mention they usually use the cheapest components they can get away with and not Neutrik jacks, Carling switches, etc.

    I have no experience with DOD pedals but I found this gut shot which confirms it's like TC Electronic with everything mounted to the board. Unless you can afford to experiment with it it's probably best to have someone with experience wire in a new DPDT switch. Maybe track down a local pedal builder and politely ask them if they'd do it for a few bucks. In the meantime try spraying a contact cleaner like Deoxit (or CRC 5103 on a budget) in the switch and see if that improves things.

    Unless there's no way around it I try to avoid pedals built that way. Where possible I try to buy pedals that have a solid reputation or were made with a simple board and through hole assembly which I can fix myself and if something cheap has a questionable footswitch I'd feel better using it with a loop switcher.

    While I'm up on the soapbox I've got a 1990s Made in Sweden Abu 6500 rocket fishing reel I strip down, put all 50 or so parts out on the table, clean them, oil, reassemble, and can enjoy for a lifetime. Parts are cheap and readily available. Beats using some Chinese junk for $50 that will eventually break, can't be serviced, and ends up as landfill. I wish more stuff was like that reel.

    Is it under warranty? The problem with a lot of pedals these days is the footswitch along with jacks and pots are mounted directly to the PCB. No matter how well they try to design these things there will always be some degree of flex and parts will break faster not to mention they usually use the cheapest components they can get away with and not Neutrik jacks, Carling switches, etc.

    I have no experience with DOD pedals but I found this gut shot which confirms it's like TC Electronic with everything mounted to the board. Unless you can afford to experiment with it it's probably best to have someone with experience wire in a new DPDT switch. Maybe track down a local pedal builder and politely ask them if they'd do it for a few bucks. In the meantime try spraying a contact cleaner like Deoxit (or CRC 5103 on a budget) in the switch and see if that improves things.

    Unless there's no way around it I try to avoid pedals built that way. Where possible I try to buy pedals that have a solid reputation or were made with a simple board and through hole assembly which I can fix myself and if something cheap has a questionable footswitch I'd feel better using it with a loop switcher.

    While I'm up on the soapbox I've got a 1990s Made in Sweden Abu 6500 rocket fishing reel I strip down, put all 50 or so parts out on the table, clean them, oil, reassemble, and can enjoy for a lifetime. Parts are cheap and readily available. Beats using some Chinese junk for $50 that will eventually break, can't be serviced, and ends up as landfill. I wish more stuff was like that reel.

    Thanks guys. I just called the local and it's $80 an hour for service, and the pedal was $90. I think I'll start with some Deoxit and if that doesn't fix it may give it a go myself after practicing my soldering. It is indeed attached to the PCB and there's also some foam on the back of the PCB which appears to be glued on. Hell of a fuzz for the money but it does seem like it's going to be harder to service because of that.

    Good luck. Hopefully some contact cleaner is all it needs for now.

    I realize doing production runs in the thousands every cent counts but it's a shame they cut corners with cheap components and especially one that will be subjected to a lot of on/off cycles. There are plenty of Boss pedals from the 80s still going strong so it's disappointing when you find something you like and it starts crapping out after a few years and worst of all they make it difficult to service and not cost effective to send it back for servicing either.

    I would consider trashing it and grabbing one of the JHS fuzz pedals if you really love a good fuzz. They have a lot of options. If you're after a specific sound of vintage, they have 4 different "legend" series pedals. Their Muffuletta has a 6 way voicing knob to alter the shape/character of the fuzz and their 3 series fuzz is a simple $99 3 knob fuzz but still built pro.

    JHS are top of the heap IMO when it comes to pedals. Wampler is up there too. There's tons of others who make incredible units but once you leave JHS and Wampler, Keeley, etc, you start going into "wierd" pedals from companies who make your reverb, delay, chorus, etc pedals but have unique twists to how they can mainpulate the sound.

    tremolos and neck thickness doesn't matter, nor does playing a fender.

    I am pretty sure Yngwie scalloped the frets of the neck too so he could play that. What that means is the wood between the frets was sanded away so you could more effortlessly move up and down the neck. They do the same thing to sitars. My room mate in college, yes it was mid '80's did it so he could play Yngwie.

    There is a huge difference in guitar play ability. If you haven't done so, get a pro to setup your guitar.

    I actually have a late 80’s strat with a scalloped neck but it desperately needs a proper setup and the fret ends need to be filed.

    Lol nope, I've had extensive experience playing scalloped fretboards including an Yngwie model Fender strat. The only thing scallops help with is bending and vibrato. By no means does it increase your ability to play fast economy picked lines and arpeggios. If anything it makes it slightly more challenging because you have to control the amount of pressure you exert with your fretting hand.
