Christ that is sexy. MB-2 SE>MB-1s.

 

How's the weight and feel? The proto was ridiculously heavy, I imagine they've sorted that out?

 

Just noticed that XY is off-centre... urgh!

 

Can't be unseen... :stunned:

Yes that's true, but it's because the shapes of Matt's guitars have varied over the years. They're the same overall shape, but aren't EXACTLY the same.

I see what you mean now. I had sort of noticed the slight differences in the shapes before, especially in the top horn on the Bomber.

 

You got your MB-2 yet James?

Nice, haha! Just ended up going through that gallery for the first time in ages - hadn't seen this one before, wonder when it's from, haha! The logo reminds me of that fake Ibanez that was up on eBay at some point, haha!

If I had to guess, it's from the 80's

 

They just need a picture of that 15 string now. The JPJ hang steel or whatever it's called looks tame compared to that...

 

And #tomorrow I'm hoping my MA-hogany and MB-2 will arrive. The department of trees went after them again, but that's sorted now...

It's a shame I'll never get my hands on then, I'll just have to savour my time with the proto whenever I visit. :ninja: Enjoy!

 

Mansion's said they've got big stuff planned for 2014... Anyone got any idea what it could be? M1D1 and/or 007 signature series pls.

A doubleneck signature series :LOL:

 

M1D1 could be a possibility since the body routing is just the same as an MB-1's. I'd be really surprised (and jumping about excited) if they had 007 replicas.

:D

I think there was a picture of a double neck custom in production in the guitar works, that'll be interesting to see when it's complete.

 

Yeah the 007 is least likely. Someone with a Delorean should have it modified to look like one :ninja:

I think we're just being hopeful that one of the things they have planned is a new mattocaster.

 

Someone on here recently said that they were most likely to have matt black as the next MB model, I reckon they're right. Either that or mirror, if there actually is a new one. A Bomber sig series will never happen but I can dream.

Yeah, but the thing is that the MB-1S (without the X-Y pad and with custom hardware) is very similar to the matt black. Just a different bridge really, so not sure if it would be worth it

 

It did seem like they still won't do exact replicas of his guitars, so I think the MB-2 is the closest we'll get.

I wouldn't be surprised if they started doing something from the latest tour. Possibly a run of the Matt Black guitar, simple setup with the fsk401. Possibly also a run of the Mattocaster 7 strings, or his carbons, red/black ones?

Beat me to it
