So is the show this weekend? I need to email them but probably not much point until that's out of the way...Definitely got serious pickup selector problems on the MB-1 one now...Been that way for a month or so but I wondered if it was just the battery for the sustainer...Put some new ones in and that works fine, but it's basically a one pickup guitar now, which is annoying because it's the other two positions I love most...But I probably can't get that done until custom is done and maybe when I'm getting the MB-1 midi sorted out...Which is annoying that it's being hindered by such a small thing...Argh...

What's up with it? Is it the mbk2 that got merked? Think I had a similar issue but a few wiggles on the kill switch and pickup switch solved it, granted it does crackle when I slowly change pickups or kill switch... Not sure if that's an issue...

And you did genuinely love it, you wouldn't let me have a go!

Does anyone know timings for the show?

MBK works fine...But I can't get any sound out of the neck pick up...If I hit the strings really really hard I can sometimes get it back until I change pick up again and it sounds as good as ever...But yeah, seems like the pick up selector is screwed...A bit annoying to spend £3700 on a limited edition guitar, and it only lasts 7-8 months before something goes wrong...Something so small too as well...Damn it...I'll email them on Monday...

Maybe use some contact cleaner on it?

I've had a few of those switches go bad, but mainly the kill switches as those get more abuse

The thing is I don't actually know what the problem is, and not having any particular electrical knowledge I wouldn't have a clue about how to fix it if I did...I'll let them know about it and see what they say, but as it needs to go down next year anyway, I might just have to leave it until then...But it depends if they can hurry up on that and make it early next year, or it'll be too annoying to wait that long...I love my bluesy neck pick up, and middle position sounds...

Well as long as you don't get angry with it!

I've had some issues with the kill switch on mine. Seems to make some crackling noises when I first use it, but it's fine after that.

when were you supposed to get the MIDI sorted out?

No idea...Ron doesn't work for them so whenever he has time basically...But I don't even have a quote yet and I've basically been told now that it won't even be looked at until next year...I don't know how long it would then take to actually get done...So no idea at all at the moment...My custom was meant to be finished this year too, but that's not going to happen now...

Sad times on the crackling so you just kept playing it until it fixed itself?

Well this is what happens

1. plug guitar in and start playing
2. eventually decide to tom morello
3. kill switch crackles first few times of moving up and down
4. kill switch stops crackling
5. ????
6. PROFIT

But I don't know, it does this EVERY time I play it. I don't think it's a major problem or anything. Pretty sure the mirror MoC does the same thing


and Bs, if it's that much of a problem, I'd see if I can take it in before that (assuming it will be a while before they can sort out the MIDI stuff). Just another excuse to visit the shop

Mine only occurs when I do it too quickly. It's not apparent when you slowly switch it up and obviously isn't noticeable when you're rocking distortion.

How about the kill button?
