Just picked up a GORM shelf from IKEA, which fits the MFC & 3 Mission pedals perfectly. I spray painted the top, added rubber feet from Home Depot, attached the pedals with Velcro and used gaffer tape to hold the cables underneath. Very inexpensive and works great. I will probably pick up a Kaces keyboard bag for transporting it.
Project almost to completion!
Seems like a stretch (pun!)..... and not for everybody but looks like it will definitely do for my needs! The PS-100 seems to be OK for the Standard or the Ultra, however, it is way too shallow for the Axe II. So this is my answer to utilizing this for the AxeII. I know i'd need to keep a beer spill cover handy when them drunk beauties come up for a request!
I currently plan to utilize a Yamaha VP-500 and a Boss FV-50L for expressions which may change in future. I do have a few others around including the Ernie Balls. Overall weight is a key factor as this seems to be an all-in-one type of scenario. Yup...a bit of stretch for sure.
In the pics i'm carrying the PS-100 with the AxeII and the MFC mounted. Very sturdy!
Still needed to complete:
1. Install of Furman 1/2 rack PowerPort
2. Lines 6 G55 Wireless system
3. Pull out handles and roller wheels
4. Powercon out connector (power monitor)

I just finished my MFC rig and thought I would add it to this thread. My inspiration came from a couple of people on the boards (I've been a long time lurker and thought it was finally time to get involved).
My pedalboard is from NYC Pedalboards. They do exceptional work. I can't say enough good things about this board. I found it simple and clean and that's what I was going for.
I have two Mission pedals setup. The SP1 is on the left and the EP1 is on the right. I custom made the TRS cables and the ethernet cable. I added the Ethercon connection to avoid continually having to plug and unplug directly into the MFC. That breakout box came from Best-Tronics. I also picked up a 25 foot Ethernet cable from them. It is of excellent quality and worth every penny.
The kick tags were also hand made by me and were provided by a member of this forum who posted the templates. I wish I had his name in order to send personal thanks to him. He knows who he is. And if he reads this, well, thank you!
I used to be such a mess with this stuff. I had an old basket full of cables that were all in a mess and tangled up. My friend introduced me to modding and getting organized and since then I have just went to town! My rack is almost there too and I will post in another thread when its up to speed.
Thanks to many on this board who I borrowed ideas from.
Are you planning on putting the Furman 1/2 rack PowerPort and the Lines 6 G55 Wireless system on the same single rack space? I'm thinking of doing the same thing to save the number of rack spaces needed, and wondering if the rack ear kit for both will somehow work together, or are you planning on getting a rack shelf to mount both to?
Thanks in advance,
So sad.... all these amps replaced by one small box.......

Hey guys, I just ordered the G55 too to replace my G50. Have you guys been able to source the racking kit? Why Line 6 would sell the G55, featured as a rack mount solution, without hardware is beyond me. Their wireless gear has always been solid for me, but kind of a pain to keep having to set it up and tear it down each gig. It'll be nice to mount it once and for all.
Just found the thread...
GRIFFIN"S LABELS ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!
Let me know if you can't download them. I have a copy here I would be happy to make available. All props go to the creator of course. Griffin I think is his handle.
Also my approach was to print them on magnetic paper. Cut them all out. Laminate them. And cut them again. It took forever but it was a fun project.

Oh I hope so. It just hasn't been clear that it actually comes with it. L6s site says "Optional Rack Kit coming soon".
Mine is arriving in about a week, so I guess I'll know for sure then...
Re: Templates, he means the tags on my MFC. There are templates in that thread I just posted to print and make your own.
Here's my setup :
Switches 11-15 are assigned to scenes. I also use one expression pedal assigned to "in gain" and two others for various effects
Axe FX II - MFC 101 - Matrix GT800fx - EV ELX112
Valley Arts Brent Mason Signature- Tom Anderson Hollow T - Ernie Ball Axis - Fender Stratocaster - Gibson Les Paul Standard - G&L Legacy
That is the standard NYC Pedalhead board with the slim case top. 30"x15"x6.5"
I ordered a yard of velcro and the two pedal mounts. Done.
It is a brilliant case. Solid and looks nice to me.
