Thanks although pic is rather dark. Each one has phaser and fuzz modules but need one more pod to make four of each

Dang, Shack - are those things BREEDING? Like rabbits maybe? :-? Last I saw I thought you had only 2 of them. At this rate next picture you will have 8. You've got the full blown disease now.

I almost said in my above message "But you don't have a 320 or a 330" but I see I didn't have to :D

You missed a nice 330 recently that the new guy just bought, that was a nice one (good for him!). It looked almost new in the pictures - it is a dandy.

Right now the ebay folks are all having a bit of insanity asking like $800-$1500 for typical MPCs, not saying they won't ever get there but probably not any time soon. I have seen them hit the $800 mark and possibly a little higher if it was NOS or almost NOS condition with case candy and literature - also with modules - but that isn't typical and those on the bay now are not quite there (the economy just won't support it). Same with asking $1800 for a semi-hollow Electra. Don't get me wrong, I will pay nice when I am able but I am a pragmatist (PC for "I am a tight wad"). Gotta love optimism though.

We can find you those, but probably won't have to because you are doing a good job yourself. About a year or so ago I had a very nice X320 that I sold. I still have my 330, but it isn't leaving here. I had all of those X300 series in the past, but I used to buy them cheap not working and fix everything and sell them 100% working and then buy more. It is much harder to do that now. These still show up every now and then, so decent ones will come your way.

I had it gone over by a local guitar tech, too. The tone pot was stuck and I couldn't loosen it at first. We deoxit'd the pot and went over solder connections, and fixed the jack. It's all tip top shape now. Real nice flame on it, too. I'll probably put it on Reverb.com soon.

I had the exact same problem with my X330 - mine had ALL of the controls frozen. But the deoxit works wonders and cleaned them up totally shooting it inside the potentiometer, and working it slightly back and forth until the entire travel was smooth and clear. It has not been frozen since (nearly 20 years now). That is a very nice looking 330. Good luck to both of you hope you work something out.

Thanks.
