Limited Edition MB-1 Nebula Black Hardware
Manson Guitar Works are pleased to announce a very limited run of MB Nebula instruments aimed at offering many of our custom shop features but at a price that is closer aligned with our current MA range.
These guitars started life as potential touring back ups for any damaged guitars on the MUSE Drones Tour. Amazingly, none ever got sent into action; the guitars thrown towards luckless amplifiers or stage centre-pieces tended to win their battle of attrition or were simply made stage ready again. And so the words #builtliketanks started to circulate amongst those that understood Manson Guitars were built to tour and perform. Eventually the guitars and parts were disassembled leaving spare solid alder bodies to begin a new life at Manson Guitar Works, now, ironically, under the ownership of Matthew Bellamy.
The Works team decided the guitars could incorporate new production improvements, custom parts, striking finishes and our full custom “Std” Neck Spec. The result is an MB model equipped with our latest Sustainiac Sustainer system, custom order 510 hardware, in house MB signature PF-1 pickup with etched Manson logo and a choice of either X-Nickel or black hardware. Further custom specs include the fitting of our solid aluminium bridge pickup surround, anodised in black and the fitment of our standard spec custom neck. Featuring a smooth, playable 12-inch radius, dark rosewood fingerboard and rock solid maple construction, it’s soft-V shape is designed to be happy with sustained soloing or solid power chord riffing.
Just 12 pieces have been created, complete with Manson Hiscox hardcase.
