Premier Guitar readers show us their boards!

"Tim also designed and built his own pedalboard. His signal chain is a Reverend Sensei into a Visual Sound Route 66 overdrive/compressor, DOD Juice Box, Visual Sound Garage Tone Oil Can Phaser (complete with a surfing turtle), Ernie Ball Volume pedal, Korg Pitchblack tuner, Boss GE-7, Visual Sound H20 echo/chorus, Boss FDR-1 Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb pedal, and Boss RC-2 Loop Station. Tim says, ""If things to as planned, Santa Claus will bring me a DigiTech TimeBender to occupy the empty spot on the board."""
