So whatever happen to this?

Oh yes! I'm looking forward to seeing if this looks just as hack-sawed together as the Fuzz Overloader we traced last year :D :popcorn:

Are there any other pictures besides Ugly Casanova's?

i think the dearth of gut shots for any of the seppukus is down to the fact that a) there are so few of these anyway (kitchen table runs) and b) uc is the only owner out there lifting the lid to confront the horror of what lies within. actually i think ug posted some guts too, somewhere. uc and ug i like. and ug gives great demo.
maybe other owners can be located somewhere on a continuum with 'praying it doesn't break' at one end and 'in denial about how little they just blew $300 on' at the other.

as you are, i'm curious about the tech from the perspective of building pedals and what (if anything) i might learn from the circuits that i can reapply in different contexts to make interesting sounds (the whole point). but i'm not into the seppuku scene. i did try to source tech info and gutshots at ilf last year but that thread has long degenerated into an extended shopping expedition ('i got this, you got that, he got those' etc) and looks unlikely to recover. it's a scene.

if gutshots turn up, cool. if not, whatever. the drone, spacefuzz, overloader turned out to be mildly tweaked long-known things, the mind warp is unlikely to be dramatically different. so i'm curious but not fixated. too many pedals too little time.

Yeah, I'm starting to learn that the only way to get gut shots of stuff like Seppuku or DBA is to buy it yourself, take more gut shots than the standard "I took three pictures which should be enough" guy and flip it for profit, if possible. :roll:

Yeah. The only issue with that procedure, is the fact that most of us here wouldn't touch their stuff with a 10ft stick, because we've already seen the guts of other stuff they build... :lol:

boy, i'll tell you, the last bits of this thread really make me want to bust out the camera again and take apart some pedals. :roll:

instruction sheet for mind warp. not a gutshot but clarifies purpose/function of controls, which may help narrow guessing as to remaining unknowns.

Hello! I can't remember where I orginally found them, but on the USB stick I use for wasting time at work I'd saved a handful more gutshots of someone's Mind Warp. Do they help at all?
