Flickr user Patrick - msigarmy.com has a couple nice pictures of Eric Melvin's NOFX rig from the past. The closeup of the pedals is from 2002. Things have changed a bit since then. The far away shot let's you get a glimpse of Mevlin's 2006 rig.

The other picture of Melvin live gives you a peak at Melvin's guitar, and was taken in 2006 by Flickr user jgarber.
