Hi everyone I Though it would be nice to plan a little project for summer holidays... I think I setteled on a more or less accurate replica of the black mansons. Now as said in the title, this build's budget is gonna be rather limited but i'm still aiming for a somehow good instrument... The parts I'm gonna use are the following: -eden paddle neck no inlays (i'll cut it manson style) -walnut or alder for the body -gfs/wilkinson hardware (i know...i know... ) -gfs fat pat humbucker as it seem to be reasonably close to the spirit of the mbk2 -now, the neck pickup is the BIG deal... I'm about to try to build my own sustainer as it doesn't look that complicated once you can solder and blindly follow a wiring diagram I just went and did a template for a mattocaster body, the one with a sightly smaller butt than the kaoss ones I'd say it's close to 98% accurate everything by photoshop from pictures taken deadstraightfrontfacingbullseye. The cavity shape belongs to mb-1 and is placed as accurately as possible. For everyone who would be intrested in the template, just send me a personal message with your email adress and I'll send you the psd. But I believe you'll have to print it from photoshop or it won't be the right dimention
