No! they include a picture of that blue glittery weird guitar with a mirror scratch plate though... It's basically about Hugh's life. I'll still scan it though!

I guess it might be a bit darker with mahog though...
yeah it probably would be, and i suppose you can always ask for a piece of ash which has subtle grain patterns?

http://www.mansonguitars.co.uk/#!unt.../cskw/imagep4f

that one isn't as subtle as mine, but still looks great

also, that's one of the best necks i've seen

I hadn't seen that (just updated or it's me?) : Manson #010 !
I would have prefered it with a ToM bridge, but I do love that Carbon finish...

I wonder if they could do that finish on a MA series... But I already have a Manson coming soon

In before James buys it...

It seems Carbon is the new Aluminium for Mansons then...I still think the swirly ali finish looks the best though...

MB-1 is currently in G B D F# B F# - I didn't think it would like it with the heavier strings, but is just taking it in its stride and sounds really good, haha! I'll probably put it back to something a bit more normal soon...

Nope, though I would've been tempted if I didn't order this from Tim

Quote:
-T-style ash body with silver carbon finish, slab body with black front and rear binding.
-plain maple neck with 22 fret ebony fretboard (clear gloss finish, side dots only, standard fret size, graphite nut, slightly larger soft V profile, headstock silver carbon with black logo)
-bare knuckle nailbomb bridge pickup (black cover with chrome allen bolt pole pieces)
-sustainiac single coil neck pickup
-tune o matic bridge and tailpiece
-gotoh 510 HAP tuners
-graphtech piezo acoustic preamp and hexpander
-magnetic volume, piezo volume, master tone, 3 way pickup selector, midi/mag switch, sustainiac toggle switches, standard jack and 13 pin jack
-toggle kill switch
-custom control knobs and tuning machine heads in black
-all hardware black
and what are you playing with that tuning? the only thing I'd really worry about is the extra tension on the neck, but I know how they said it wouldn't be a problem

still have mine in drop D 100% of the time though

I've just been playing a bunch of Godspeed You! Black Emperor stuff...The Mansons necks seem pretty solid to be honest...It doesn't seem to be having any problem with it at the moment anyway, and the strings aren't as tense as I thought they'd be, particularly the low G...But yeah, I'll probably keep playing around for a little while more with it, and then put it down into something a bit more normal...Maybe...
