Readers’ Pedalboards #13 Back In Black

This stylish board, featuring our Blackout Cali76-CD, matches its guitar companion

Steven Tijerino dropped us an email with some photos of this stunning pedalboard as well as lots of juicy information about what is what, what plugs in where, and what it all sounds like…”Watsup! Born and raised in San Francisco. Gig around the Bay Area, mainly in the worship scene. Electric guitar is my main focus, but I can get down on the drum when needed!

“The freakin Cali76! Own the Vision Guitar Blackout exclusive, s/o to Bryan and the crew for stocking the best gear in the Bay Area. Top jack mounts and its unrivalled tone has made it a mainstay on my crowded board. It’s set up as an always-on light comp, output turned up to push pedals and amps. It’s my secret weapon, for my fat tone!”Guitars: Revelator Guitars Jazzcaster
