Matthew Bellamy, the lead guitarist in the rock band Muse, Manson Guitar Works and Cort are pleased to announce the launch of an all new signature guitar. After a productive period of research and development between the three parties, the new guitar will be based upon the official MB1-S series and features a newly designed pickup set from the Manson Guitar Works team together with a discrete kill button.
The new satin black finished guitar incorporates a sleek maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, a solid basswood body, special Manson designed bridge humbucker and true single coil neck pickup reflecting the layout of several of Bellamy’s stage and studio custom instruments. The kill button allows a wide range of guitar effects to be created by the player without resorting to outboard effects. The headstock design features Bellamy’s distinct signature together with the Cort logo. The rear of the neck has a gloss finish and Manson logo behind the headstock. The guitar offers incredible value for money for all guitar players seeking a quality and unique shaped instrument. The MBC-1 FF is the only official version offering the genuine USA made Z-Vex Fuzz Factory and retains the original manufacturer warranty on both the circuit and the instrument itself. A full custom route is added enabling easy acces to the internal trim pots if required and a separate battery compartment allows easy access without disturbing any of the circuits.
Instruments purchased via Manson Guitar Works means our luthier team checks every single guitar, resets the action once again and carries out a further final inspection. There are also options for the guitar to include a quality Manson Gig-Bag or UK made ‘Works’ hardcase. Further ‘Works’ upgrades including pickup, circuit and hardware options are also available.
