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. This is the first official Matthew Bellamy signature guitar to be distributed to a global audience.
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 matt 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 will be unveiled at the NAMM show in January 2015.
