Paragon Mini “The King”

Just finished up the paragon mini build. I think this one turned out pretty good! I went all out and used the NOS diodes and everything. Sounds killer. I also used the gorva, pro footswitches that I got off of lovemyswitches.com. For the enclosure, I sanded it down to 400 grit to give it a nice but not super polished finish. I'm still learning to cut my wires a bit shorter; they always end up longer than I would like! BTW does anyone have any insight on which dips-switch combinations do what to the sound?

Just noticed I might of mounted the dip switches upside down. They're spst so it shouldn't matter for on/off functionality I think. Will there be any other problems?

Cutting your wires on the long side is much better than cutting them too short. My dad taught me growing up that you can always cut more off but you can’t put it back on. Great looking build
