I'm modding and rehousing an Ibanez SM7, and I'd like to put it on my pedalboard afterwards. The only problem is the shitty buffer it has. What are some decent loop pedals that are true bypass that I could put the pedal through?

Build one. It's four jacks, an enclosure, a stomp switch, and some wires. Check beavisaudio.com for schematics.

Robert Keeley's a pedal genius but no single true bypass loop is worth that much.

agreed... tough to believe you're paying for much more than the name and a couple LEDs on the JA. on the other hand, if you're unsure of your soldering skills, you can sleep easy with keeley's work. what's the going rate for peace of mind

Except circuit Input/output goes to the tip of jacks that your pedal will be plugged into.

Thats not a very good diagram. The 3PDT has lugs that are rectangular so the switch can be orientated correctly. The diagram doesnt show which way round it should go (the lugs should run horizontally) and that only shows the switch layout, to do that to a non-true bypass pedal would require you to bypass the buffer, which is different for most pedals.
A looper is very easy to build, and is about $20 in parts. Here's a good diagram for one

Not my diagram.

And if you've got half a lick of common sense, but didn't know the orientation, you'd hook a multimeter up to see which sides were switching.

And it would be for building a separate box. Just doesn't show any of the jacks...This would bypass the pedal just fine.

EDIT: Woops, missed that he wanted to rehouse it completely.

I'll probably just build one, it's not that difficult and considerably cheaper.

If you've got the money mate, then get this right here. You can loop 8 pedals or 8 combination of pedals and then label them with a labeler.

It's a real nice and proper bypass.

That's nice, but I definitely don't have the money for that, and I only need a loop for one pedal.

Do you still want to rehouse the pedal? Sorry, the diagram I provided was for using a separate box, and keeping the pedal inside the bypass loop.

That's what I plan on doing anyway.

Well never mind then. But I do think that if you've got the money, a dedicated switcher is worth it.
