It's a Traynor TS-50B preamp in a box. The schematics for the original are online and are fairly simple.

I would really like to see the guts or schematic for the Boss FDR-1 Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb.
I played with one at the store and was surprised how nice it sounds. I'm not as interested in the tremelo or reverb part of the circuit. It had a nice overdrive.

Yeah I just realized that after I posted (it's digital). Now i'm even more surprised it sounded so nice (at least with the amp it was hooked up to).

I know it. But I still would like to see the guts of that box.

If I didn't know better, I would have thought I built it.

And I guess now I will.

It might be outside what is usually discussed here but I would love to see the insides of some of the Trogotronic stuff.

I'd really like to see the guts of a Pigtronix Mothership and be able to see how much of it's lineage comes from the fabled EHX Rackmount Guitar Synth. Does anyone have one?

Ok, here's something I've looked for, but can't find. The new Dunlop Hendrix Octavia. I just can't seem to find a gutshot, and I'd really like to see what it looks like under the hood.
