TS808 Tubescreamer Owned By Stevie Ray Vaughan On eBay!

This eBay listing had me reading it twice and then a third time to make sure that it wasn't just a clever item description to draw attention. 

Folks, it's Holy Grail time again at eBay!

Up for your perusal is what the seller claims to be a genuine Ibanez TS808 Tubescreamer formerly owned by Stevie Ray Vaughan!

Tubescreamer connoisseurs will notice that this pedal is from 1980 with the 'registered trademark' above the Ibanez logo and the sought after JRC4558 chip in the circuit, coveted for its warm, 'brown sound'.

Interestingly, pedal mod guru Analogman's Tubescreamer history page also lists this pedal with serial number 111179 as belonging to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Cesar Diaz, Stevie's tech at the time.

Vintage TS808's go for a pretty penny these days but given its pedigree, I anticipate that the price of this particular pedal is going to go through the roof.  But as always, do the necessary research before committing!

Electric Guitar Stilettos... Ayyyyy!

Designed by Max Kibardian in collaboration with Chicks On Speed for their Objekt Instruments collection, this stiletto incorporates strings, a pickup and a built-in wireless transmitter

I'm guessing the strings can be tuned and will vibrate with each step -- tune each shoe a flat 5th apart and you'll have a little Purple Haze intro happening! 

This one should have Manolo the Shoeblogger going ayyyyy!
