There was also the photoshoot of the rust relic on train tracks. I'm guessing those tracks weren't actually in use though!


Also, surprised DR-19 is still #ForSale... I thought it would've been gone by now, especially with that last update.

Agreed. That's actually pretty reasonably priced for a LE signature series with that spec. I'm a little surprised the hand-painted Zvex MA one-off the works has hasn't sold. I thought only 10 of those were made, each with the different pickgaurd. Its price isn't absurd either.

Initially I thought @dickmovedom was getting that sxc jazz MK II, but it has the wrong pickups...

Must be texan Jim.

I did see an outline of a potential sxc jazz. Alas, got other priorities.

One day though

Drone: 29 arrived in Dallas TX this morning. Had a nice surprise when I pulled out the case it was labeled DL-1. I paused for a second and thought hmm but alas it was my DR-1 inside. Seems like a solid, no-frills basic guitar. Mine has all the options. I really love the custom machine heads on this guitar. So nice when tuning. I might have to order an extra set for my James Tyler.

I'm really happy and thanks to Manson Guitar Works.

The neck relief is almost flat...maybe 0.001" of relief. The action seems a little high for my tastes. Are there official Manson setup specs for their guitars?

Congrats. Yeah the custom hardware is great, although keep in mind you can't use a string winder with them.

And not really. I do remember that the first guitar I got from them in 2008 had higher action than what I was used to, and I had it lowered slightly... but not long after, I ended up putting it back to how it was as it seemed to play better that way.

I had the same issue when I got mine. It plays great, once I adjusted to it I've started raising the action on my other guitars

Congratulations! May I ask how much the import taxes were?

I'm not sure. The shipping charge was $225 maybe it was built into that price?

Played the guitar quite a bit last night and I adjusted to their setup pretty quick. Once this thing acclimates to my weather I'm going to set the relief to 0.006". Since that will raise the strings slightly, I'll lower the bridge just slightly. Should be perfect.

Got a problem now. Now I want a real Manson custom guitar.

Hm, I never bought anything that big from overseas so I have no idea how this works, but I think usually FedEx would send you a bill ex-post

Same. Might grab a sustainiaced Red Glitter sometime.

Also, I'm glad the High output pickups aren't actives, means I can easily switch it out with some better ones, maybe some other Bareknuckles like the Juggernauts since itll be my sludge/stoner guitar if I buy it. I was worried when I saw the typical black pickup covers

From what I've gathered from Adrian and others who have purchased from here in the states, Manson will charge you their $225 +/- depending on exchange rate, then FedEx, who it seems they use for shipping, will bill you later for somewhere short of 10% of the purchase price in all likelihood, so don't let that expense be underestimated in budgeting. Technically too, you're to report it to your state as well to pay sales tax on depending on what state you're in. Most people don't do this for your typical online purchases because paper trail is generally lax and the tax equates to next to nothing in the end, but for me in PA for example, 6% on a 3k manson is $180. Since there's import records on that entering the country, I'd be more inclined to think they would look into that and consider auditing if they happened to catch you not reporting it.
