I have a love hate with the Holey Mansons, they're really pretty but they trigger the FUCK out of my Tryptophobia.

one day when I'm not poor I'll be able to afford a manson

I don't think you'd really be able to tell a whole lot about the voice with the amount of stuff he's running through, but it definitely has a very different sound from the non-holes I mentioned, but then that also has a different body wood.

I have to post this email exchange:

Happy Monday!

I have been thoroughly enjoying my stealth MA2 EVO. I did have one odd question.

The Sustaniac switches appear to be a little loose, I noticed that one of them was a little cattywampus and upon further inspection both of them rotate kind of freely. I'm pretty competent on my setup and repair and before I pull the control plate off I was wondering if that was just how those switches are? The nut that holds the switch in place appears to be at least more than finger tight. If they are just like a normal boring double throw/double pole switches I don't know if there is another way to tighten them down.

It's a tiny little thing to complain about, such a freaking awesome instrument and you guys totally exceeded my sky high expectations.

Hi Eddie,
I had to look up "Cattywampus" now I am more knowledgeable! Yes, when customers request the black toggle switches we use the normal switches you might find on coil taps etc, the chrome sustainer ones are much less liable to cattywampus-ness which is why I don't like to fit the black ones over the chrome ones, but many of our customers do want the as much black as possible look as favoured by some of our artists. I don't suggest opening things up if the lock nuts appear secure as you say. In practice they don't appear any less robust - the sustainer switches still operated on this one after the "smash event".

Glad you are enjoying the guitar.

Heh can't say that's part of my vocabulary either, but I think I've heard it before.

I've got those black switches on one of mine, and they're not loose. At least not yet. I did have to tighten the ones on my black carbon a fair bit when re-installing the sustainer board, but those are different. Probably not a good idea...

Also, removed your email address from that post. Otherwise those live stream bots might find it

very odd... I may open up it up and have a look around.

Thanks for fixing the email!

First thing I noticed there was the BMW parked right outside. I wonder if Tim drives that, he seems like the type of guy that would.

All those guitars and you spotted a car first

Looks like they've got an MB-2 there as well
