I found a Panasonic SH253 on the street. Took it home, works fine with my stereo, but I don't need it for that. I was thinking of buying some 1/4" to RCA cables and putting it in line with my pedalboard after the distortions, in lieu of an EQ pedal, for recording. Will this work?

I've never tried one in my guitar chain, but I do have a consumer-grade EQ in my equipment rack I use for recording. I'm doing the same thing you are - converting its RCA outs/ins to 1/4". It works fine, although I'd prefer to have a pro-grade rack unit instead.

My advice? Go for it.

I don't see why it wouldn't. I use a two channel 15 band equalizer in my rig, which isn't meant for guitar but rather a PA rack set up.

Really does open up a lot of possibilities! Let me know how it works! I was thinking of trying something similar.

Gave it a try and it works. I was worried the impedance mismatch might cause unwanted noise, but no such issue. My only remaining concern, and I have to keep playing with it to be sure, is that I think the tone might get slightly thinner when the EQ is on, even with all bands set at zero. However, I could just be hearing things. Placebo effect can be a pain.
