I can't remember, but I think you're referring to this. It's black and red, and is going on one of my guitars



actually got a look at the neck the other day, so it's just the headstock that had the material, and the lacquer wasn't on yet. Looked nice though

Didn't have my camera with me that day. Only the neck was there, and it was almost completed from what I understood. Still needed a bit of sanding, the lacquer, and logo from what I remember

Maybe that red one I saw is a works guitar going up for sale. If it is, you should buy it

... or you could always build one, but I hear it's not exactly easy to work with

Out of interest, if I wanted some sort of additional modifications (Like Olly had his M1D1-ified) what kind of extra costs and procedures would there be? If I did get an MB-1 I don't think I'd have it turned into an M1B1 if I could, just out of respect to preserve the originality of Olly's one. At the moment I have a thing for carbon fibre
When the e-mails got sent out it was pretty much panic for me, haha! I replied as quickly as I could and just prayed that I was in that 25. The 3rd run was insane though. Adrian said it was like a 90% uptake on the e-mails he was sending out or something. None of the others have been anything like that, but he said it might have been down to The Resistance tour having just ended and people had had time to build up interest and savings for it.

And yeah, the MB-1 has to be finished as a full guitar before you can modify it, so you'd have to take that into consideration. But thinking about it, what happened to Olly's now? There's mirror on the top, so is the forearm contour still there, or did they do something about that? Might be worth knowing so you can see if something could be done with the carbon on it. Would be expensive, but awesome no doubt, if you really wanted it with the MB shape and XY.

olly's one still has forearm contour, it just goes with one of the cracks, not bad! however from the sounds of it adrian wasn't ever so keen on too drastic of a mod on the mb-1, almost sounds like olly bagged the one and only Manson M1D1 out of the process (though it's never going to sell with those chrome straplocks)

If they made the MB shape available for customs then people wouldn't need to.

They could still add a surcharge for Bellzorz if they needed to...
