FS: FOXROX Captain Coconut 2 "Hendrix in a box"

I really don't want to do this but I found a new Les Paul I really want. I have a Dave Fox "FoxRox" "Captain Coconut 2" for sale. In superb shape. I have the original owners manual that will come with it. The owners manual got wet so it has some stains on it. Still very legible to read. I don't have the original box though. This is "HENDRIX/TROWER" in a box. This is a very, very, very hard pedal to come by without spending $1000.00

****It's yours for $750.00 in CONUS ****

Here's the link to this pedal: Untitled Document

If you have any questions, PM me.....

The link does say $399 but I looked on the 'dealer links' and didn't find any available. His site even indicates he can't keep up so supply and demand kinda kicks in.

GLWS, pretty cool looking unit!

Re: FS: FOXROX Captain Coconut 2 "Hendrix in a box"

They haven't made this pedal in a while. These were all hand made. Dave Fox discontinued these after 997 out of a 1000 were made. Here's Dave's story why he discontinued:

Written by Dave Fox, 10/20/06
Captain Coconut was a dream come true for me. I always wanted to have those three Hendrix effects at my feet. I came up with the idea back in 1992.
Q: Why stop making them?
A: The original plan was to make 1000 of them. I almost made it there... (Over the years I rejected bad metalwork and a few got lost in the mix, so it looks like CC2 will only make it to around 997). CC2 has been a great product. It's sad to see it go, but I have to free up more of my time to design and build other things. Aside from putting the parts in the circuit boards, I build each CC2 myself. I don't trust others to get it right.
So the answer to the question is this - If anything is going to get done at Foxrox (like answering emails, designing new things, etc..), CC2 needs to get the boot. I'm working closely with a factory in Totowa, NJ, and they will be building my future products for me. They're currently making the Octron pedals. This factory also makes professional sound boards, which are designed by my old buddies from Crest Audio. Check out APB Dynasonics. There's no limit to what this place can do for me. As we say goodbye to CC2, we welcome a steady flow of new things. All built locally so that I can insure the same quality and attention that I've always given to everything I make.
Q: What about the future - will you ever make them again?
A: I've tossed around the idea of a CC3. So there's a chance I'll do that in the future. But for now I've got other ground to cover. My design work is shifting into high gear with CC2 out of the picture. I'm almost done with a new Vibe pedal, Octron 2 is coming (don't worry, original Octron is here to stay), new ZIMcards..other cool stuff... More info soon.

Q: Will FuzzCards still be available?
A: Yes, I'm building up a batch of spare FuzzCards (Hot Silicon NPN, Original PNP Hybrid, and Vintage Germanium PNP). They will always be available.

Q: Will you still service CC2's? What about the warranty?
A: I will always service CC2's. I only charge if a unit has been modified or damaged, regardless of whether it's old and beat up or purchased used. And in cases when I do charge, it's only for parts and shipping. I don't charge for labor unless the CC2 is really screwed up. In most cases you only pay to ship it to me. But that's not the best part -
CC2's main circuit board can be easily removed for service. Remove the bottom, take the nuts off of the 7 jacks, and unplug the connectors. The board comes right out- no soldering iron needed. Heavy duty connectors are used so you don't need to worry about anything falling apart. If a board has been damaged or has failed for any reason, it can be sent to Foxrox Electronics for repair or replacement.
