If it turns out well, I'd be interested in picking one up and I own a legit Manson. Collecting these guitars is nearly impossible with all the work I'm currently doing. Certainly my most expensive habit.
Yeah I actually asked them about the chrome guitars and they told me they will do a replica but in gray/silver color instead
And yeah, im curious about how it turns out. Will probably immediately change the picups with a FSK-401 kit since the wilkinsons it comes with are kinda crap. Maybe ill buy a mbk-2 from manson for the bridge if it turns out decent.

Thank christ they're not touching chrome. Personally I'd go and buy whatever you need and let them install it. At least you'd be able to salvage the parts for a proper custom later on. Isn't that much of a risk. Just make sure you're negotiating the price down since you're sending your own components to them. Ideally you'd provide most of your own electronics, materials and you'd just be paying for the installation, the body and the finish.

Yeh, I'll probably throw away their garbage electronics and install new ones myself. I have just received a fsk-401 kit which I ordered online. Will probably install it immediately as I receive the guitar. Only problem is that I dont want the "sustainer intensity" know. How do I remove it? Do I just cut the cord and leave it?

I'd make sure the guitar is worthy of spending $$$ on expensive gadgets to stick in it before spending out personally.

A little update. The guitar is soon ready, will probably ship in a couple of days. I had them redo the glitter now it looks great in my opinion. Some of you might be a little mad because of the logo on the neck, but again, this is just for the wall and bedroom

Pls note: All guitars in our custom shop are created by the craftsmen who are famous worldwide. Besides, we also have some professional tuners who are specially responsible for testing and tuning guitars's tone. Every guitar before shipping, we repeately test and tune to make sure it is nearest to the original one in tone. So you can be assured about the quality...




This is probably the greatest thing i've ever read! Maybe John Cruz has left the Fender Custom Shop and got a job at the 'rare electric guitar' factory.

Lol chillax, its not much different having a fake custom made with a manson logo from applying one on a guitar you have made yourself.

Of course I will play it, but I won't be bringing it to gigs etc. Will be an addition to my man cave.

If you had waited for the Cort bellamy signature, you would have a guitar much more playable.
