One string and 13 pedals. Wow!  I’d go to a half string. Sounds great Poorness. You’ve filled up your pedal rack. Now two strings would double your fun. :*)

Nice use of the looper there Poorness, and as you say, you can do so much with just one string. Back when I was teaching, I found an excellent book called 'The Advancing Guitarist' by Mick Goodrick. It's pretty heavy theory stuff but I found some great ideas and concepts in it that I was able to incorporate into lessons for my third year students, one being what the author called 'The art of the Unitar' if memory serves, all about using just one string. We had a blast exploring those ideas and it really got the students thinking in new directions, me too. Don't know if you've ever considered it, but check out a Canjo.....they're great fun too. I have a few with diatonic fretting and I want to build a chromatic one at some point. Here's my favourite, beautifully made by fellow Nation member Ryan of Cig R Guitars.....https://cigrguitar.co.uk/
