I imagine Mansons are epice win, but I doubt anyone here actually has one. I mean, they cost like £3K! Still, any info on these would be awesome.

If they're good enough for Bellamy I'm sure they're good enough for you. I would get one if I could afford it.

Yeah. Manson guitars are beast. But the Koass pad seems essential.

I've got one, a Red one from the first batch, one of the best guitars I have ever owned, fantastic build quality and sounds awesome, the 2009 production run (of 25) sold out in a few weeks, the 2010 run sold out in 3 days!! Admittedly it is expensive but had to have one, there's a short video of it here when I was trying out amp sounds between my 2 amps, few bum notes here and there but it was done in a bit of a hurry

That's a retardedly high amount of money to spend on a MiM Fender. If you got a second hand one and did the work yourself, you could do it for about 4-500 quid less.

Anyways, I think the Mansons are cool, but I wouldn't get one with a Kaoss pad. Even Bellamy seems to only use it as a gimmick really...and you've got to spend a shit load on extra electronics asides from the guitar.

but bellamy has afew interviews floating around, about these mansons and what they sound and play like. so a quick google search may help you decide abit quicker

I was thinking about not bothering about the Kaoss Pad but I do now use it now and again. It was a choice of having a wierd looking Red Tele for £3200 or a wierd looking Tele with a X-Y Pad for £3500 (less than 10% more) My mate played it at a gig a few days ago and it looked very cool with the lit up X-Y Pad :-)

I don't know about their guitars, but Manson basses are f@cking spectacular. I imagine their guitars are probably top-notch, also.
