    Default Beam me up Scotty - NPD! (Orange, sparkly, and awesome...)

    And set PHASER for stunning!!!

    That's right - scored a minty VFE Enterprise Phaser. For me, this is the holy of holies as Phase goes. I'm not a huge phase guy and have been living with a self-EVH painted Joyo Phaser for quite a while.

    That said, come aboard the Enterprise, from the now defunct VFE company. You may know them from some of their excellent Fiery, Pale, Dark Horse distortions....

    Speed, Center, and Feedback(+/-) knobs, plus a little mix knob.
    Your choice of 2, 3, or 4 stages
    And Phase, Vibe, or Phase-Vibe

    Plus a b!tchin' Orange metal flake paint job. This ain't your grandpa's Phase 90!

    He's actually building some of these again this summer, along with all the others in a limited-run.
    VFE is then handing-off the designs to another company (?) for future production.
    The catch is you have to pay first,,,,,,,,but he does have a very good rep for delivering as promised and keeping everyone up-to-speed with his progress.
    Orders open until memorial day.

    I was seriously worried when VFE took a dive that these would disappear forever and only re-appear at ridiculous prices. FYI - got a killer deal on it too. The Ferengi would have been proud.

    I'm really curious who is going to be making his stuff after the summer run. He's using a 6 full-size knobs (instead of the 3/3 original) format as the final design, toggles will remain on models that use them. I'm betting those simpler 4-knob(no toggles) designs are totally scrapped now.

    Update: Had to dig deep in the innards!

    I'm guessing someone jacked with the internal dips. was making a horrible sound on the four stage that just pummeled the output to distortion. Anyway - got in there and really went to town with a little Duncan Basslines screwdriver.

    Oh Phase-baby!!!!! Was running it in the look of my Hughes and Kettner. Phase-O-licious!!!!!

    I was digging the 4 stage finally for basic MXR tones (not that I could dial that in yet...lots of knobage!!!). But I was really digging the 2 Stage. The Vibe was cool too, and the Vibe/Phase was a wild little setting.

    Honestly, I think I liked the 3 stage more than either of them! Anyway...now to body go, where Aceman has never gone before....

    The stage setting, the mix and the feedback are really interactive. Gonna take me a bit to really dial it in - but many many tasty tones!!! Again - not for you one knob fans at all.

    4 stage is generally what I use. Just some swirl, and not so seasick-sounding. I don't want the sweep to overtake the musical part I am playing.

    Slight phase with a just right level mix is kinda chorus-y, yet not...
