A VL Mondo (I'm loving mine)?I just picked up an WH Overrated but really haven't had a chance to spend too much time with it. Will yours stay on your board?

Recently, I realized I had been playing my black strat (partscaster) almost all the time and really ignoring my FCS sonic blue WW10. That led me on a search for a custom shop black strat, while also helping me make the decision to sell my sonic blue WW10 (hence the "for sale" post).
Well, a guitar I had been eying about a year ago came back up for sale and I had to grab it. It's another FCS Wildwood 10, but this was a custom order '62 strat, and it greatly resembles a halfway relic'ed BLK1. It came today and I absolutely love it. I did switch out the John Cruz pickups for my handwound Abby 60s, but other than that it's just like how it came from the custom shop. It's got a great dark rosewood fretboard, super smooth neck, chunky 65 C-shape neck profile, and it's SUPER light - just over 7 lbs. One difference I notice compared to my partscaster is how much more sustain there is with this strat.
Anyway, I'm super excited and really think this is going to be my main guitar for a while. My apartment sucks for taking photos, so I'll include a few that came from the original listing.

@CleanTone - Great stuff! Feel free to post clips in "noodle" thread.
1. What speakers are loaded in those two (2) cabs?
2. What OD pedals, etc do you use on floor?
3. Do you gig, and if so, do you run both amps, or bring one... which one?

Can't wait to dive in and see what kind of tones I can get with this combo.

I'd like to try the Dumkudo... You do compare it to the SOV-2 or Zendrive?
My favorite pedals combination - for lead tone - at the moment is Katana (pulled out knob) into the Final Booster. The Katana fatten up the single coils and gives a very light breakup and the Final Booster add some complexity and harmonics.
I never compared my old ZenDrive from Alf, nor Gold one I have with Dumkudo, but think you're in ballpark = save the money My Final Booster (old Providence version) hasn't made it on board in long time, love it, does what you said, but currently using Chase Tone Secret Pre-amp, which is kind of doing the same thing IMO.

A few old more sentimental items but the main ones:
Squire Classic Vibes, with Bill Lawrence Rails
1950s Maton Coolabah
Gibson 70s J160e
Samick 85 Strat with GFS Mayer esque Pups
Mini Maton EMD6 Diesel Special
Ernie Ball Musician Silhouette, Custom stain with Bill Lawrence Pups and Tone Rider HB.
94 Grätsch Country Classic
Mason EBG808 Artist.
*Not mentioned are nothing of worth more sentimental.
Amp:Fender Mustang 3 v2.0 - I only play acoustic out, so this amp gets me all the tones or close enough for the price.
For the majority of time I use a TC Helicon VoiceLive3 with Boss EXP and Switch 6.
Does everything I need for looping, harmony and effects/amp sim.
Am currently putting this smaller pedal rig together for acoustic as well. On a Pedaltrain Metro/Nano with a Cioks Big John underneath. Should be fun.
...... and most importantly I just paid for and should receive THIS next week
