It works well for uncoordinated people though (sorry Phill, couldn't resist)

Sort of like that MoC made out of an old door with unparalleled upper fret access

Also, they said on their website that they tune the guitar before shipping so it will arrive in tune.

If it arrives out of tune, will you return it?

Yes I mentioned that earlier. I just fear that the hole they've drilled for this one is too large to fit the ones used on manson guitars. Maybe Ill just have to stick with this one

I was being serious though. If I bought a guitar from a company that says it will arrive in tune, I would send them a complaint (just to see the reaction) when it arrives out of tune.

here's the standard sized kill button

http://www.mansons.co.uk/product/pus...ll-switch-4873

requires a 15mm hole

would you be able to replace the killswitch on an evo with the kill button? or would the pot be different?

Ah arright! I dunno, they're very bad at english, they use "pre written" messages they just paste into the e-mail when I ask them something. So they'll probably just paste one of those we apologise messages

Anyway, I think I've kind of fallen in love with the arcade style button. Will go well with the XY pad in my opinion. But however, if I want the standard one Ill just purchase it. No biggie. However lets pray the hole isnt like 30mm wide

Well we all have our preferences :P I wanted this kind of "space" look, I suppose they´ve somewhat achieved it. Considering the cheap hardware they´ve used and the "chinese" reputation Im not expecting a decent guitar. I have purchased the electronics and hardware I think is required to achieve a "decent" guitar, and I also know a tech who is willing to help me setting it up. But anyway, lets hope it proves to be better than the expectations.

Well, the guitar itself is already shipped and some of the electronics as well, but it also depends on when manson ships the tuners and pickup, but I reckon it'll be ready in a month (ultimate maximum). Also depends on what time I have on my hands considering im a student. But ill definately consider making a video

Pics look really nice. The paint job looks first class, but don't let that fool you. So be thorough when you fit the expensive new parts, or you will be wasting your hard earned cash.
As well as swapping out both pups and tuners, I'd recommend a complete rewire with new pots/jack/3-way, the absolute cheapest crap will be in there. I'd also remove the neck and clean up/sort any poor workmanship around the joint before ensuring a tight fit and correctly reset (check too there there are no high/low frets etc, you'll probably need to adjust truss rod to do this right). If the neck needs any work, do it now.
The nut will be a piece of crap too, but I think you noticed that.

Get it right, and it should sound as nice as it looks.

P.S. A solution to your kill switch/button problem might be to add a lil black surround like on the LP. Could also be set in and painted?
