Manson Custom MA Ali Plate 2011 Dry Satin Black Finish

Sorry, this listing has ended.


I am reluctantly selling my custom Manson MA Ali Plate guitar. The guitar was purchased on 21/04/11 by myself - I have been the only owner. It is in an excellent condition and has been hardly used hence why I am selling.

It comes with a Manson Hiscox hard case, certificate of authenticity, guitar strap and strap locks.

The spec of the guitar is as follows:

Brazilian Mahagony Body
Dry Satin Black Finish
Bolt-On Birds Eye Maple Neck
Premium Indian Rosewood Fingerboard
Hand Cut Aluminium Scratchplate
Gotoh Machineheads
Manson MBK-3 Pickups

It is a beautiful guitar to play and to just look at.   

Here is a snippet from an email that Adrian from Manson sent me regarding the guitar:

"No worries - that ali plate is a great guitar - pretty much the hand made one-off that Hugh produced when we discussed creating our new shape MA model, and made at the same time as it's deeper twin - a baritone version that was shown to Josh Homme at Reading festival. Enjoy the guitar and if we can help with anything else in the future just drop us a line.



When asked if it can be easily confused with a standard Manson MA: 

"It would have to be a very untrained eye (!) as your custom shares no components with an MA-2 apart from the machineheads - the neck, body and remaining hardware is both different spec and higher grade. Works guitars will eventually come with certificates and when the design is complete I'm happy to backdate and send out a certificate to customers such as yourself that have already purchased a custom.

So there you have it. Stunning guitar which has been well looked after.

I have been speaking to Manson's regarding how much the guitar is worth - I am listing it slightly cheaper than what they recomended.

Delivery wise I would rather buyer collects but I may be able to deliver too. Thanks for looking and please contact me for more info.
