    I was thinking of posting it, but decided that the poor sucker probaly suffered enough already.

    I dont think there's gonna be much bidding on that one!

    Peace

    I'm not sure thats fungus. It might be the remnants of a crushed fingertip where the nail is partially grown out. Gross none-the-less. I was actually thinking of bidding on this pedal (assuming he sterilizes before shipping...just in case).;)

    I don't what the hell that is, or what's going on, or what the Trace-Elliot device is, but I know it's music related, so it get the hell out of my forum.

    It's a Trace Elliot dual compressor pedal. And the condition is most likely psoriasis (sp?), 'cos that can make your nails go a sort of nasty greenish colour!

    Guys,

    Seriously, Lamasil or Sporonox (spelling?) should fix him up (it did me and my dad).

    Texchnically this thread is not musically related. Jazzbo moved it based on a technicality.

    Well, the item in the pic is an effect. I guess it's Bigfeet's department.

    Swish!

    The pedal, that is! It went for $81.00. No charge for the funky thumbnail!

    hmmm - whatever the reason for his manky nail, i think i would have avoided it in the piccy.

    unless he's like the chap who auctioned the kettle just so there would be a pic of him naked on the net.


    hang on though....are those fingers from the same hand ?

    i've got a TE dual comp, and i think i'd hold it with 2 hands.....so how is he taking the piccie ?

    unless he's holding it in his feet !
