Nice, I think you'll like it. I want a micro cuts outro cover with P92 + piezo

please?

Also, what's the body made of on your laser replica? musewiki says the original is mahogany, but I always assumed it was poplar for some reason.

i've had a few peeps facebooking me asking to build replicas, i don't, here was my reply

I'm afraid i only have time and money to make a replica every 2 years, as I'm a busy family man and run my own company.

i don't make replicas for anyone but myself for two reasons

1. The shape and design are copyrighted so i could be sued by muse management and Mansons guitar shop
2. i enjoy playing them as much as making them, i love all my guitars and would never want to sell them

good luck, I'm sure if you ask on the board someone will for you and I'm flattered you have asked me :-)


i feel bad saying no, but i just can't

It would have been cool to etch your own phase 45/90 and maybe save some room....also, why only start the thread when finished? Looks interesting.

because i knew it would take months to get the money together and get parts when i can afford it, i've done it before and some projects take 6 months from start to finish, better this way i feel :-)

and it still needs wiring

I'm pretty sure Manson has not applied for any kind of trade mark/copyright on the shape of their guitars. I don't know where people keep getting this. Not to say you should be making/selling replicas to anyone on ethical reasons, but still I highly doubt the shape is copyrighted. Hell Fender couldn't even copyright the strat/tele shape.

fender could not copyright the shape as the judge ruled that the strat and tele are geniric guitar shapes, this is different. the shape is Mansons/Matt's

besides i don't want to

Another thing, Guitars are considered art, you cannot copyright art. Same goes for circuits, you cannot copyright the drawings as they are considered "art".

So really, Mansons would be wasting their money if they took anyone to court over it, but I respect your view on it as personally I couldnt "rip off" another company either.

They'd have to prove that the shape is distinctive enough to be unique to their brand before they could protect it (Incidently Fender and Gibson only have protection over their headstock shapes but not over the body shapes). Even then, if anything, the outline shape of a guitar would be protected as a trademark or a design rather than copyright as you're protecting the outline itself, not just a picture of the outline.

In any case, art is very much subject to copyright as per the Copyrights Designs and Patents Act 1988 (s.4). I find it strange that you'd think otherwise as protecting art of one form or another is a huge part of what copyright is designed for!
