Got any pictures of it with black paper? You know I'm fond of E shapes

EDIT: haven't seen a sustainer like that on any other guitar

Or maybe I'm imagining that.

Well I was thinking some glitter and a baked maple - but birds-eyes and gloss would also work

I don't think they actually have plain baked maple - all of it is figured

I think some of the older fernandes guitars had them, but I can't remember. The pole pieces are probably just for looks either way.

Here is a photo I just took on my obsolete iPhone 6S

That's amazing. Looks fantastic.

Side question, what single coil should I put into the MBC-1? I know the obvious answer is a sustaniac, but I don't have that kind of cash floating around. What are some options you guys have heard that you like? I was thinking to leave it as a clean and chimey sounding pickup, but I also know how good the single coils sized humbuckers can sound.

It seems like the options are a bit limited (at least if you want a proper strat type pickup.) You'll need one that doesn't have the piece at the bottom of the pickup, as the MBC doesn't seem to be routed for that. Maybe this sort of thing? I know the MAs usually have these as a stock option.

Obviously they do. They plan to buy one with the money from this replica.

I need to pick some of that up as well. I usually just use a micro fiber cloth, which works well enough in most cases, but not always.

Well the thread title hasn't changed, so I think that indicates what the status of the guitars is.
