MANSON MA 2019 RANGE LAUNCH

Manson Guitar Works are pleased to announce updates to their existing award winning MA Range. The popular MA guitar has been seen with players from all genres since its introduction in 2011, having started as a scratchplate equipped single guitar model. Now divided into two distinct divisions - the scratchplate equipped MA Classic and the rear route MA EVO - each have received a series of improvements and updates and a new naming structure for easier identification. All models are now listed as MA EVO or MA Classic. Options are simplified and include a one tick Stage Two Upgrade package. To coincide with launch we will be listing completed guitars on our website over the next few days.

The new 2019 MA EVO features the following upgrades:

Neck position pickup resized as full humbucker for wider tonal and switching options.

All electronics upgraded with new Manson specced custom CTS potentiometers. Custom shaft sizes, tapers and tolerances all with solid shaft bushing.

All models now hardwired and assembled in our UK workshops with Orange Drop capacitors as standard.
