Fulltone OCD signed by "Rico"?

    There seems to be some sort of cult status around "Rico" signed OCD pedals that a quick Google search is not giving me much info on. All of the Fulltone OCDs are handmade, and apparently Rico was an assembly worker that was either involved with the original design of the product or just really good with a solder gun. I haven't found anything definitive, though. Does anyone know who he is and why pedals whose circuitboards he signed are more valuable (if they even are)?

    And yet you provided no more useful info than the other replies. I'll take a post with no substance but mild humor over one with no substance but complaining. I would assume that if these people had information to share, they would share it. It is not an attack on the OP. There's nothing effed up here, excepting perhaps your overreaction. Chill out, yo.

    All I know about this topic, which is very little yet still more than I care to know, I know from a google search I did just now. I will share the most vital bit that I learned:
    But seriously...if I had to guess, I'd go with this:

    I meant no ill will. Just having a good time and enjoying keeping things light.

  11. No one did, and even the OP got in on the fun. :) Every party needs a pooper, I guess.

    Heh, I missed that one of the jokes was from the OP. Clearly we have alienated him.

    Confirmed: OP now looks like this. Sorry, dude. :(

    I'm signing all my pedals with "Rico" before putting them up on Ebay from now on. Since Rico is my name. Really.

    I recently purchased an OCD V2 for a great price and I found that it's a Rico. I'm also curious what's up with it as well.

    There's lore involved in soldering pots to PCB's?

    Since they are mass/machine produced pedals, Rico must be a guy they hired to stick the bottom covers on for a while and he took it upon himself to sign a few. The rest is history.
