I see there is a listing on ebay for a lighted foot switch and pedal. Starting bid is $100. I'm going to bid on it and will go as high as $225. Hope to not step on anyone's toes on here. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up.

I'm not into the metalfront amps, so I won't be bidding. Good luck!

I just saw the listing. It includes a boost pedal (wah) as well as the 4 switch pedal.

That would be quite a steal.

Yeah and the guy only lives an hour from me.....go figure. I have two of the amps that need this. Would be nice to have a complete setup. Hoping that the bidding doesn't get ridiculous......may not be many of these out there but they do surface every now and then.

Nobody's gonna bid up the price until the last few minutes of the auction.

Neither the switch nor the wah pedal are common at all. They used to bring a lot of money when they came up, but that was when there was much better economy and a lot of collectors.

As much as I would like to have it, I can live without it also. If its meant to be mine, I'll get it otherwise someone one else who wants it more will get it. I'm also looking at a couple of other things on ebay that should go cheap so if I don't get the pedal, just more money to use on the other Kustom stuff. Pleats right, there's always room for one more. DAMN this is addictive!

Still haven't picked up that organ yet down in Texas, but when I do, be prepared for a visit. Might as well give you some of my money verses ebay. I just bought a bunch of Elation lighting equipment which I got dirt cheap....stage setter 8 and two dimmer packs for a song. Next is the stands.....all I need now is a drum set and I have everything to furnish a band.

Nope, I changed my mind at the last minute and decided that the price was too high. Went for $207. I'm doing a road trip in a couple of weeks to Ohio so I'll hit the pawn shops and music stores along the way and see what bargains are out there. Eventually, I'll find one for a lot less than that price. All about patience and someone who doesn't know what they have. If I could get my hands on one, I am betting that I could make copies of it since I know a guy who knows how to forge aluminum and another guy who works with plastic molds. Anything can be duplicated if you know the right people.

I see Guitar Center has a Kustom organ for sale.......the one with legs for under $900. That is quite a good deal I think just don't have the need for another organ at this time since I don't play.
