Recommended Posts

Haha, thanks, @james90! I almost forgot about it this year actually! I got a nice surprise from MGSV though to remind me, haha!

@Ross0203 - Does this mean you're finally getting an MB-1? Weren't you planning to get one the same run I did way back? xD

@Bs that's not how you tag people

 

Also, only just noticed the MB-1's X-Y pad pulses in time with unsustainable. Coincidence?

Awesome! It's weird to think I've had mine for 7 years now. I've just started playing it again for the first time in a while actually. It's still as good as ever!

Like 7 years ago I had just put my name on the waiting list :classic_biggrin: Good to hear it's still going strong.

I'll be getting mine tomorrow!

I didn't realize I would get a notification for every post you make. :ohmy: This is amazing!

@james90 - Haha, you could follow everyone on the site if you wanted to! xD

@Ross0203 - That's great! Hope you have an awesome day! Open it in a room with lots of sunlight if you can, you get the extra specialness of seeing all the sparkles as you open the case for the first time.

Thank you! I opened it up in the shop and it was absolutely phenomenal! :D Part of me would have preferred the matte black one when this runs specs were announced, but they've really gone all out on the glitter this year and I couldn't be happier with it.

 

My reaction to seeing it:

@Ross0203 - Sounds great! :D

It'll be worth the long wait when you get the chance to play it as well. Look forward to seeing some pictures here!

My Santa arrived last Friday! Base model with roasted maple neck. By far the best guitar I've ever played :D

Nice! The neck looks gorgeous. Is that a rosewood board??

Sorry, I missed your post! I think it’s rosewood (at least it looks like rosewood) but Manson’s web description says “Pau Ferro Rosewood” so it might be Pau Ferro. I don’t know what it is, but it’s an absolute beast 😬

My floor is nice, but the walls not so much 😂😂

Sooo...2019 MAs now live on the website.

thoughts??


I like them. Curious if a holoflake version will be out at some point, but guessing not, since the previous ones were anniversary models.

It does seem to make sense going for a neck humbucker route - far more options than a strat type single coil. Plus they're more MB now.

The Santa MB-1 looks gorgeous!

I should try and get a photo of mine together some time. Just gave the new one a clean down and string change today.

Hi Guys

 

Can anyone do me a huge favour and photoshop a MA bomber in that new blue colour Mansons have started doing? Tempted by a new custom with rio grande pickups like the original bomber ;)

Like this? Might look a bit better with an actual paint finish. That isn't photoshopped.

Thanks James appreciate it. Theres so much choice its hard to pick. Maybe go with a floyd rose black p-90 case. Or different colour combo altogether .  

 

Or copper bomber or something like rust relic ...

Wouldn't the obvious choice be matt black? Only semi joking, as I do like #NoneMoreBlack bomber they finished up recently.

 

But what about something like this?

 

 

There's also the Full Metal Jacket finish:
