    And I still want one of these! I was bugging him every 3 months or so for a while but he stopped responding, so I stopped asking.

    My wishlist for MannMade:

    1) Unplated NOS2000 trems
    2) Unplated 1980 spec. Saddles
    3) Chromed wings
    4) Phase III tuner shafts with a slot for E-clips so you can use wings.
    5) An ultimate bourgeois engraved NOS2000 trem with fancy pants flowers and squiggles or some sh!t.

    Nothing that can't be solved with a 6-axis CnC and 4000 hours of programming...

    I bet you could finish your programming before any original tungsten gets milled. This is an ongoing thing, apparently.

    Adding body weight? I've been trying to figure out how to weight relieve a nine and half pounder...

    No problemo. Lightweight mahogany can be picked in Nashville.
    Plus, I’ve never seen a 9.5 Lb. R9.

    Both of mine are well under 9lbs. Isn’t that a requirement for an R9?

    Count me in for 2. What’s on the Standard? Too lazy to look. If it’s not a Milcom, make it 3.

    I think I would have gone through the input jack at various angles instead of polka-dotting the sides like that.

    I gave you a price and you didn’t like it...
    and I told you in advance that you would not like it!

    Give me a break!
