Nah it isn't

 

Also, I didn't get to see the MBC-1 in the shop, but I wonder if that has a different finish.

 

edit:

 

What musecasters said, though I'm pretty sure my wooden floor is actually plastic...

#plastic

 

And nope, I think it's mainly my customs that have strap locks! I've noticed that schaller seems to have changed the design slightly as well, so some of the new strap buttons won't fit my existing straps

I imagine you can play that without a strap!

 

And it was just the last few sets that I got. The locks on the strap don't slide on at all.

I didn't recall it being too difficult to play without a strap anyway!

 

And if that's #NotForSale, hurry up with that other one so I can throw some ideas at you again :ninja: Actually, I'll do that now...

Is that a mansons job or steal (steel) customs?

The owner just said it was an upgrade, but I'm guessing it's Mansons

I'm curious if it has a matching headstock

I've noticed a very small patch of "glossy" paint on the headstock right under the strings... not too bothered about it as I'm guessing it was something during the set up has rubbed against the paint. As long as it doesn't happen on the body ill be happy :)

It'll happen over time, nothing you can do about it but embrace it. Matte finish just naturally will get polished slightly by the rubbing and wear of use. I've yet to see anyone produce any sort of matte guitar that doesn't eventually get his effect. I've got a Gibson SG that does the same thing. Sadly matte black guitars show this gloss effect the most.

anyone with a sustainiac installed in their mbc would kindly post up a pic of the back cavity? I wanna see just how tight of a fit it would be since im planning on buying a cort here in the states then ordering a sustainiac setup and installing it myself, as it'd be way cheaper than ordering direct from mansons (i know, blasphemy!)

I brought mine to a luthier with the intent of getting a sustainiac installed by them. The back cavitiy is just barely too small to fit the pcb for the sustainiac, So its gonna have to be routed out.

hmm, thats weird. i've emailed Alan at sustainiac and he says it's possible to install it into the cavity of the guitar without any additional routing. he says if anything it'd be easier to install into the mbc's cavity since it doesnt have the 4-control layout or the metal plate thingy majig that gibson cavity's usually have

When I took my MBC1 in last week the Luthier i was talking to showed me the size of the pcb relative to the size of the cavity in the back. It will not fit without some routing, no ifs and or buts.

fair enough.

 

on the other hand, has anyone tried removing the button kill switch and replacing it with a toggle switch? i'd assume it wouldnt be that hard. the button imo just looks plain ugly and in need of being replaced by a toggle :rolleyes:

Yes, it's definitely possible... Alan and the guys there actually installed mine in the cavity with no problem. Works great, but is quite a tight squeeze in the cavity! It sits on a slight angle diagonally.

 

Different toggle placement than the usual, too, but I actually quite like it.

haha if i would get the sustainiac installed i wouldn't be able to live with the way your toggle switches were laid out :p

 

joking aside, it is still possible to have the usual parallel-to-strings/bridge placement right? the mbc cavity is is actually super roomy and im pretty sure you can still put the switches paralell in the top right corner of the cavity. if that makes any sense

My MBC should be here this week and has a sustainer installed so I'll upload a pic of the cavity (if you're still after one)

ah yes please do :D

i'd think a lot of people here on their own modifying quest would benefit from knowing just how much room there is inside the cavity for installing a sustainer

I got my sustainiac installed from mansons and they expand the cavity to the edge of the guitar..

 

Nice foot.

 

Is the new cavity cover recessed?
