How's yours looking now? I gave mine a deep cleaning with that lighter fluid stuff a while back and it actually made a pretty big difference.

And I don't mind waiting a few extra days if you don't... really.... it's not a big deal.

I'm used to it by now, haha! The other one's still looking good. It stays pretty clean by itself to be honest. I spray it down from time to time which makes a little difference, but really it more or less takes care of itself actually. I actually find it's the frets and strings on the MB-1 that seem to get dirty really quickly, but I'm not sure why it's different, whether because of the wood in the fretboard, or that the custom has all that extra metal to spread the moisture round or something. It's weird, haha!

I thought about your post during breakfast today, and came to the conclusion that it's possible that your MB-1 gets dirty quicker because you play it more.

Is your new one still stuck in customs or have they released it yet?

Still needs the Jaicen spec Classic TC... if not, I'll have to modify mine to that spec.

I don't though, haha! If I play them the same amount over the same time period, the MB-1s frets get dirtier and the strings get rustier compared to the custom. I don't know why but I've noticed it for a while. I seem to have to clean the frets and strings down on the MB-1 about two or three times more often, haha! The other one seems to stay fine for much longer somehow...

Could it be a more acidic fretboard?

You're currently online. Does that mean you came back after breakfast this morning to find custom #2 waiting on your door step?

... in the rain?

Haha, no, I'm still away, but checking the internet generally on my phone. The guitar hasn't been clearer yet as far as I know, but the FedEx person said they'd try and get it done tomorrow with some luck. I did have an awful dream last night though that Muse announced one of their by request shows in Bangkok at about six hours notice and I couldn't get tickets, before realising I'm hours away anyway and wouldn't be able to get back in time even if I did. It was a weird night, haha! On my way back now anyway, but I will hopefully have the new guitar in the next few days. I've got some free afternoons to try it out I think as well, which will be good. Haven't actually had time to play at all for a couple of weeks now.

So have they cleared it yet?

Indeed. It was cleared yesterday and I finally got it today. First thoughts were about how much black guitars show up dust and wondering if the case latches and frets for my other guitars really used to be that shiny too, haha! A couple of years here will soon take care of that! Anyway, I've just been testing it out and making sure it all works. So far so good.

Haha, sorry! I don't have any photos yet though and as you asked about it, I thought you'd like to know either way. I did try to get a picture on my phone but it didn't really work that well unfortunately. The finish is very, very subtle, so without the right light it pretty much looks just like plain black really. I'm not sure if I'll be able to get something better with my camera but I'll try that when I can. Probably not today though, I'm afraid. For what it's worth, it sounds maybe 80% like my other custom, and 20% like the MB-1, or something like that, but feels kind of different to either. I think the action's lower so it feels very fast and smooth, but I also have to be more precise when I'm playing if that makes sense.

Glad you've finally got it How long was the build time from ordering? I'd like to think the build times for customs would be quicker now since they've moved into a bigger workshop.
