Hmm, that is interesting. Maybe the M1D1 was the last of the wonky's then? It's hard to say as it's broken in the shot above.

It's not one of the guitars I like all that much. Maybe I am wrong, as I always though the original red glitter was a different shape to Red Glitter 2 as well, but now i'm not sure. Certainly from Matt Black 1 onwards they're all more symmetric, so maybe that was the first of the new ones then?

EDIT: I just went back and checked it looks like all the 2007 guitars share the same shape, though I haven't got a good shot of the Black MIDI. Clearly I was talking nonsense earlier.

Nah we're referring to the upper left in particular, which is still intact.

And I wouldn't know. I don't think there was a massive difference between red glitter and its replacement, at least not as much as the two guitars in the picture I posted.

On a side note, I'm curious why the original one is now stripped of all its parts. Surely they wouldn't have recycled them onto the new one (or any other guitar), unless the replacement was built in more of a rush that we thought.

Edit:

Do you mean black MIDI as in the M1D1's replacement, or black MIDI as in the first X-Y guitar (below)?

I meant the black Midi as in the one that looks like an MB1s. I think Matt calls it Auto?

And for me, the lower bout is where the difference lies, the old ones are wider at the bottom than the new shape guitars. I'm fairly sure the Red Glitter 2 is a different shape.

Ah shame about that. I was hoping to find some answers just for a standard model.

I also forget to mention I was looking for the Keytar dimensions as well.

@jbias12

I can't remember, but have you been to the old works? Or the shop for that matter? I know you went to the show last year.

No I never got to see the old MGW. I only went the day of the show and the works was obviously closed.

Did you manage to see the shop at least?

I'm eager to see the new Works anyway. Not completely sure if I'm able to go again next year, but certainly by the following.

I think going back and forth between the shop and works might be an issue as well. I understand it's no longer a minute's walk between the two

Yes I was able to hang out at the shop for a bit. Tried to buy the CE-7 that was on display

I guess I should figure out where exactly the new works is in relation to the shop. It'll only be a few hours in Exeter as I train in from London in the morning and train back after I pick up the guitar and hang out for a bit.

A few of us tried that last time, and it really didn't sound that great for some reason. Probably because we weren't playing citizen erased.

Not sure, but I guess I won't be popping down to visit every few hours It does sound like there is plenty to keep one busy at the new works, as they seem to have that little gallery/demo room up above.

It's not too bad. Just a matter of figuring out how to get there, especially if you're a texan like I am, and won't be driving.

No idea what the area is like otherwise, but just as long as there is a nando's within walking distance.
