First you're pointing out that you actually still have that Manson which you never seem to talk about, and now saying that a squier could be.. nice?

You're getting more and more like your old man by the day, son.

I asked them to send me some more photos. The guitar is now routed and painted (with glitter!) and maybe it'll be ready in a couple of weeks? They haven´t fitted the logo yet so a custom one can be done, any suggestions? (PS: seems like the neck pickup is routed kinda close to the neck?)

The paint/glitter makes it hard to tell how well it's routed but I mean the shape looks okay. Not a fan of the glitter but it'll look nicer with some hardware on it.

Just plain maple for the neck?

Yes, I guess we will tell when they have assembled it. Chrome hardware and a hardtail bridge, will go nice with the glitter
And I went for a plain maple. Could have birds eye for additional 40 $ but I wanted it to be as cheap as possible, so I just went for the standard. Maybe a birds eye if I purchase another?

Nah, I meant since he's the owner of a legit Manson and knows what the real thing is like, why would he want to buy something that's obviously inferior just to have? Some of the Squier Vintage Modifieds are really neat guitars. There's an obvious quality difference between them and something like a Manson or an Elliott, but they're nice enough - if you wanted a cheap knock around guitar, I can't see why you'd diminish the brand of a really nice guitar that you already own by ordering a Chinese knock off rather than something like a Squier VM Cabronita. But hey, to each their own.

That glitter finish looks A+ by the way jk it looks like dandruff

Lol Was hoping for less glitter more evenly spread but hey, it might look better when the hardware comes on.

Yes, but that doesn't include the fretboard in case you were wondering

My mistake, son. I thought you were actually admitting that you still had an MB-1... or the remnants of one

Let's not get carried away now. I'm sure this guitar actually has real wood for the fretboard, even if it does look like one of those eBay necks

I was looking over their site and they've been offering chromed Mansons to customers. I wonder how much they cost and I wonder how terrible they look.

A friend of mine bought a fake Gibson signature guitar once and it fell apart after using it about 20 times. The neck snapped off, the input cable nut fell out. Tried to fix it for him but then the pickups started dismounting. I'd be really skeptical. Only do this if you have some money to spare.

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.
