Manson META Series MBM-1

Manson Guitarworks has unveiled the META Series MBM-1 guitar.

The first instrument the British company has released since its acquisition by Muse frontman (and longtime Manson user) Matt Bellamy, the META Series MBM-1 is built under license by Cort.

The guitar features a basswood body and a bolt-on neck design with a hard maple construction. The satin-finished neck features a compound radius and a soft V profile, plus a jotoba fingerboard. 

Sonically, the guitar's neck pickup offers "a fuller neck voicing to more closely match the raw and powerful sounding bridge humbucker pickup."

The MBM-1 also features chrome-finished hardware, staggered locking tuners and a kill switch. 

The Manson META Series MBM-1 guitar is available - in Satin Black or Starlight Silver finishes - for pre-order now for $899.
