Got a problem now. Now I want a real Manson custom guitar.
I've never set the relief by measurements - only by looking down the neck as well as fretting the 1st and 15th fret and checking the gap at the 8th fret.

I remember the first time I visited them, I discussed my setup preferences for a custom that had just been completed. Seems like I actually prefer the neck a bit flatter than usual. I wouldn't know the measurements, but I doubt they're all exactly the same.

And yes you do. The DR-1 really is a great guitar too. Would you say yours is particularly light? They seem to vary a bit... rust_relic said his is about the same as his MB-1 (which is a fairly average weight) and I've heard from one other person that they said theirs is a bit heavy. Mine is probably one of the lightest guitars I've played though.

Have not weighed it but I would say my DR-1 is slightly over 8 lbs. This is a big piece of swamp ash so 8# seems about right.

Nice! Got word from MGW on that?

On a similar signature guitars note, I'm surprised there aren't more photos of recent owners of DL-1s with their Swirl Pack's anywhere... Nothing on #mansonguitars

Yeah March I was told, but it's not 100% definite. Would make sense though since the DLs are done now. I'm currently in a panic to get my deposit together as I had to use some of it in an emergency.

I wonder if the rosewood issue is preventing some of them from being sent. My strat (no, not Jaicen's one) is going to be held up for a short while, and that's something I sent to them that's being returned.

Yep. I creeped on a few other posts of his and it's definitely a Cort. Proof that good musicianship trumps instruments, not that a Cort is bad by any means. I'm sure I'd sound like shiite on a Manson compared to a legitimate touring musician.

On a similar note, I played a John Mayer signature strat yesterday at a used music shop near me. Thing sounded incredible even with my playing. Those big dippers are amazing.

How different from the average strat? I've heard about those pickups before.

I'd feel a bit weird owning signature gear that's for someone that I'm not familiar with.
