    I like the look of the new version, sort of instant classic. But I'm quite pleased with the look of the original version too, and I'll be sticking with it. Never seen a Nocturne pedal yet that was a loser.

    I should have clarified that, yes you werent focused on the girly thing but rather the kidnapper cut n paste approach to the rest of the box top. :) Tell me more about your secret past? :)

    Since it is a child-friendly forum and there are rules I have nothing to say but WOW! I would be perfectly content with more girls on the Nocturne pedals!

    Tavo posted the first pic on Instagram today of the real box. Can’t wait to see it fully assembled.

    This just posted. Looks great built up and can’t wait until mine arrives. I love this new look and the blue. Paging @drmilktruck for blue.

    Yep, I saw that but I am saving for a speaker and the red cream El Pescadora.

    I noticed these shots today and it states ready to ship :). My pedal chain really misses my DC that I sold to get the El Pescadoro. So it’s exited.

    If anyone is dilly dallying around on ordering... now’s the time before they’re sold out. I PM’d Tavo about my order and he mentioned half the batch is already sold.

    A sweet sight to see :). This picture makes me think of the old Ford assembly pictures. The rumor on the block is these have a metallic sheen on it. Maybe it’s me but these crystal knobs on that Ghost Boo look wicked good.

    Looking forward to the inevitable limited edition Surf or Seafoam (as per BorderRadio above).

    To my knowledge it’s still V1 inside and both look good in my book. But more importantly, both have the sound.

    I believe that it's the same electronic circuit, just new cosmetics.

    same exact internals.. My "millennial builder buddy" told me I needed to tone down w the hotrod n rockabilly look" and make the look more accessible. All I wanted was for gretsch players to get a light overdrive that was inclusive to hollow and semi hollow guitar players plus stackable w other pedals. Yes I do like the checkers on the original but this new monochromatic look still lets me get that 40's car radio meets scifi thing using a muted metallic paint and crystal clear controls.

    I like this one but all I can say the more Hotrod hotties you have on pedals the better for me! I would say more. It it would mean @thunder58 would need his mod hot so....

    I'll be discontinuing the pinup girl on the Fuzzray too, unfortunately. Its not a good mark for the brand (whatever that means for a guy in a garage and backroom office) in this day and age, it is seen as misogynistic by a younger audience.
    I dont want to give the impression that I'm objectifying ladies in anyway. Yes my arms are covered in pinup tattoos but "its my body, my choice" :) :) Pedal boxes must be shared. :)

    I love the old pinup art but I also love history and WW2 plane nose art. I’m sure a revamped Fuzzray will reach more audiences and sell. But I have the suspicion the price and demand for an early used Fuzzray is going to remain strong for those that have one. A win win for everyone.
