Some lovely gold...

Hi guys!

I recently bought a 2nd MP1 as backup and of course the seller wrote "PERFECT CONDITIONS, LIKE NEW, NO MODS, 100% ORIGINAL".
f*ck him, his whole family, mother, sister and wife.

The unit is an old V1.38 (1.38 EPROM), battery has been replaced already (no holder... :crazy:).
It has the following issues at least:

1) the plastic thread of front Input jack is ruined so that the nut and washer fit and keep the jack in place with some difficulties
2) very low volume sound from Output B and sometimes from Output A too...but this seems to be an issue related to the top level switch (if you move it)
3) front Output level pot should be replaced: it's not noisy but it's jerky
4) almost all screws of top and bottom lid are loose and do not lock firmly in threads and 1-2 are missing
5) 1 missing screw in front panel
6) power cable has been shortened

This is what I discovered when I turned it on.
Then I was a little disappointed, I turned it off and I started telling the seller what I think about him.
I did not test loop/pot, phones output/pot, MIDI.
The chassis, display, buttons are in good conditions and work fine.

I paid 190 euro for this MP1...and I cannot define this a good deal.
Of course the f**king bastard refused to take the unit back and give me my money back...and he did not offer any partial compensation.
I gave up with him: he's lucky enough to live 5-600 km away from me.

By the way, now I decided to sell the unit for parts if someone is interested.
I would keep the JJ tubes.

I don't know how much I could ask and there are shipping costs to consider.
So, guys...just let me know.
If someone is interested for any reason, make me an offer and we'll talk about it!  :banana-jazz-smiley-emoticon:

Great pix, Max! I love seeing a guitar come together, especially when i'm not doing it - haha. It's a LOT of work. I understand why it costs so much after building and refinishing a few axes, I have full respect for those that make or refinish guitars.

Nice to see the orange-peel surface of a rough clear coat. That'll smooth out with a few more coats and some wet sanding  :thumb-up:

Well...that padouk requires a lot more of coats and wet sanding....  :lol: :lol: :lol:
But it's coming out beautifully!

I share the respect for people doing jobs like this.
And I can say the final cost of this guitar will be a lot more than reasonable, considering materials quality, hours of work, all of the customization I asked for and the overall quality.

And now...Jescar EVO Gold over ebony!

58118 on the lower frets and 57110 on the higher frets ?!? Awesome!!

Ciao Magnus!

They are jumbo on the lower frets (0-12) and narrow jumbo on the higher frets (13-24) 57110 on the lower frets...maybe 55090 on the higher frets? By the way, they should be the same frets you have on your RG550LTD: Dunlop 6100 and 6105 size.  :banana-rock:

Hi guys!

Work is going on.
Padouk is a wonderful tonewood, but it's a pain in the ass when you have to work on it (tons of thin red dust everywhere in the Universe) and paint it...but these are luthier's problems...  :lol:

Have a look...  :whoohoo!:

No worries it will probably be too expensive- thanks anyway


Does this mean I can buy the faulty one from Iperfungus?

No worries, You can try to PM Richie_B, haven't herd from him for a while, Max (Iperfungus) might sell it to you ??, postage is the killer which is one of the reasons I suggested Richie_B as you live in the same city.  Max is in Italy so at least they use 240v.  However, if I were buying it from Max, I'd have him send it to MJMP for a bunch of mods/upgrades/whatever it needs first and then get MJMP to ship it to you.

Well, I do not need that 1.38 I'm considering selling it. depends on what you need it for and how much you would spend for it...  :lol:
As Richard said, that's a 220-240V unit and postage will be very expensive from Italy to Australia for sure (60-70 euro, that's about 100 AUD).
Don't know mate...just let me know what you think about.

If you would use it, probably Rich is right: let MJMP restore it for you.
But, as I said, it depends on how much you would spend for that.

Honestly, I wouldn't spend all that money just for a lid, if I were you.


To be honest, MJMP asked me about that, if he's interested...let's see.

Our guitar player found one, almost spanking new for 225 euro.

Good score!  :thumb-up:

I've no idea who Michael Wagner is or what he sounds like  :facepalm:

Shame on you!!!  :nono: :nono: :nono:

Michael Wagner (producer) = Dokken, Skid Row, Extreme, White Lion, Accept, Great White, Motley Crue, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne...

He used the ADA MP1 to create many guitar tones in the '90s...  :headbanger:

Hey Max, just checked (his profile), he's a fellow Australian  :wave: .
