Surely a custom, because the MB-1S wouldn't be ready yet.

That's the badger. Just been on the phone with them this morning discussing some final decisions. It feels like such a relief to get some sort of definitive receiving point.

Since BS isn't reading this thread:
It has the following:

- 7 string custom shape (modelled after a SUPER STRAT), swamp ash wrapped in swirly ali
- Ebony fretboard and hard maple neck
- Matching headstock with stealth looking manson logo
- 7 string sustaniac sustainer in humbucker because BS loves the HUMBUCKER LOOK
- MBK-3
- THE MAGIC BRIDGE consisting of a floyd rose tremolo system, midi and piezo, all with BYPASSES
- Fuzz factory because the FUZZ PROBE isn't enough on the pedal board (I miss the third fuzz factory)
- Nickel hardware (knobs and machine heads).
- Think it packs around 3 batteries, most of the guitar is hollowed out besides the top right corner i believe, all to make way for the electronics
- MAGIC BRIDGE had issues primarily in getting enough pressure on the piezo, this has been modified to work now BUT it limits the amount of whammying allowed.

Think I have everything. 3 years have gone past from idea to where it is now, this is exactly the guitar BS wants as he doesn't want another guitar and knew that if he was spending a lot of money on a guitar, he might as well go ALL THE WAY.

Haha, well, I am reading the thread and you're fairly close. I'll get videos at some point. It's amazing anyway.

Yeah, swamp ash body, birdseye maple neck, ebony fretboard, custom body shape, swirled aluminium covering. 7 strings, Sustainiac for the neck pickup, MBK3 for the bridge pickup, modified Ibanez ZR-7 bridge for GraphTech Ghost (piezo and MIDI) compatibility, Fuzz Factory, and Kill Switch. The main knobs are for magnetic, piezo, and MIDI volume, and the switches give flexibility on what's active at any given point. Three batteries, but it could have run on two. I've got two dedicated to the sustainer just to prolong the battery life. The other battery serves both the piezo and the Fuzz Factory as they draw so little current each.

Pfft my description is perfect! I have also been assured that you'll always remember which switch does what because of how much time you've spent on the design. You originally wanted the fuzz factory on a separate source so you can make squeally noises whilst doing a sustainer or tuba but they said no.

It's accurate, but the bridge is pretty much faultless actually - no problems playing with that at all as it turns out thankfully. The MBK3 is awesome too, and the internal Fuzz Factory is a nice option to have. Had to lower the volume of that and the piezo a bit as they'd set them way too high, so I grabbed a couple of internal photos while I was at it. Played around with it for a bit while it was open actually as I had to test the new volumes, and it all stayed in place nicely. The other cavities for the bridge springs, the kill switch, and the batteries

pfft it's accurate to what you've been telling us :P james can probably hunt for the quotes on the thread. glad the bridge works fine then. Is that a custom ali knobs to control the truss rod?

It's part of the bridge set up to control the spring tension I think. I haven't had to mess with anything like that yet. Better resolution picture if the upload works.
