The new 2020 META Series MBM-1 Signature Guitar is our lower price point instrument that delivers a whole new playing and ownership experience for the Manson Guitar Works player. Produced under licence with Cort, it has been extensively modified and developed to reflect more closely the guitars that Matthew Bellamy plays on stage with MUSE.
The body shape is 100% MB signature and available in the ever-popular Satin Black or a new Starlight Silver finish. A new humbucking neck pickup offers a fuller neck voicing to more closely match the raw and powerful sounding bridge humbucker pickup. A kill-button allows stutter style effects.
Hardware is chrome finished and feature laden with staggered locking tuners for quick string changes and the elimination of a traditional string tree.
The basswood body combines light weight with a neutral tonal balance. The bolt-on neck design features a hard maple construction with a Indian laurel fingerboard. The satin finish neck feels played in from day one and features a compound radius and a soft V profile.
