Hugh Manson is a big name and has been making custom guitars for over 30 years. He has earned an enviable reputation within the music industry for innovation and quality, making electric guitars for some of the world’s best known rock & roll superstars, including John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin and Matt Bellamy from Muse. Cort came up with this collaboration project with Manson Guitar Works resulting with this new electric guitar model M-Jet.
What is known as the “tummy cut” in guitar circles has been carefully laid out on the body of the M-Jet for maximum comfort without removing unnecessary amounts of wood. The lines are graceful for aesthetic beauty as well as for ergonomic considerations. The M-Jet’s Manson humbuckers are specially designed and voiced to provide a wide variety of the most popular electric guitar sounds without complicated switching systems that often get more in the way of the player than inspire him. The bridge pickup has plenty of power, punch and bite but cleans up nicely when backing off the volume pot. The mid range is rich and thick while the low-end is defined and tight. The highs are clear and sweet without any harshness. The neck pickup is vintage in character with warmth and plenty of articulation. From clean jangly rhythms to a fat singing lead tone, this pickup matches perfectly with the more aggressive bridge humbucker. A classic hard tail bridge design, this traditional and time-proven system maximizes sustain and is extremely effective in transferring the strings’ vibrational energy into the body. The inlays on the fretboard evoke certain feelings and Manson has designed these special inlays with Chinese characters that stand for the number of each fret position. These inlays impart a unique and striking look of timelessness and modern sophistication. The locking machine heads provide superb tuning stability by eliminating string slippage at the posts while facilitating quick string changes.
Comes complete with Gig Bag.
