Are you allowed to say what this regional touring act was? I bought a 1995 LP from Mansons several months back, and it has a really unusual amount of wear for its age. original frets still have life, but it looks like it's something that must have been gigged heavily for several years.

But I don't know any of its history.
Don't quote me but I think it was owned by Matt from Element 80. The problem with that is half of the guitars and amps I've owned or seen pop up were rumored to be his.

I want to put Gotoh 510's on my MA-2, will this be a simple retro fit?

Yep, as long as you get the correct ones. The cast ones all have the same diameter post (10mm) I think, and you should get the HAP at least, but just be careful of the small screw location as they have at least two different types.

Hi guys !
I post here to ask for help!

Here is the situation :

I am making a replica of Manson MB2 SE with twin p90 (manson) and sustainer.
I can't find a solution to configure the sustainer to work well regardless of which configuration.
Either it works perfectly with the p90 alone and doesn't work well with p90 in series or vice versa.
Do you have a solution? Someone has already had a real MB2-SE and can tell me if the sustainer is tuned for a precise configuration?

Thank you !

pretty sure you can have it only configured to one setup, so if you preferred tone of both pickups, set the sustainer for that, and visa versa

Oh thanks Musecaster !

That's what I thought! If a Manson owner with this configuration could confirm and tell me on what p90 configuration the sustainer is set it would be very useful!

thanks again !

Hello, I made some weeks ago a guitar inspired by the M1D1 (without the cracks) but I'm now facing a problem:
Although the sapele was supposed to be dry when I bought it, I let it dry a month more before working with it, and now the guitar is finished, it has warped (I took a ruler and the convex part is a little less than 2mm).

This wouldn't be so much of a problem, but the joint between the 2 pieces of wood is now starting to appear on relief with the mirror.
For the record, I already made a similar guitar, but the mirror was glued with neoprene, and I used epoxy (Araldite) this time.

Has anybody of you had this problem?
Is there a way to fix it?

Thank you for your answers

Once the wood has moved, there is no solution other than take it apart and plane it down and hope it doesn't move more. I'd start again with some quality tonewood from a proper instrument supplier. Sapele is usually super stable, I'm surprised it moved if it was properly dry.

Well, I'm surprised too, because the wood came from Madinter (in Spain), which is supposed to be a very good wood supplier...
The wood is quartersawn, that very surprising too...
Maybe the glue on the mirror made the guitar warped after drying?

Well, I'll wait the end of the summer and see what happens...
I might rebuild the guitar though after this.

Since I will never use Araldite anymore (some grain starts appearing under the mirror), what glue would be the best to use for the mirror ?

Araldite is epoxy with alumnium powder, but I'd still use an epoxy of some sort. Something with some flex.
