Cort has teamed up with Matthew Bellamy, the frontman and lead guitarist of Muse, and Manson Guitar Works to develop an all-new signature model that is built to Matthew's exact and demanding specifications. The result is a superb rock guitar with a big full tone and rock-solid feel without the boutique price. This exciting model features a specially designed set of pickups from Manson and a discrete kill button to create unique sonic textures.
The MBC-1 features a discrete kill button allowing you to creatively expand the wide range of sounds already available.
The MBC-1 is equipped with locking tuners. These die-cast tuners assure stage-ready tuning stability.
The MBC-1 is equipped with pickups developed by Manson Guitar Works especially for this guitar. The versatile setup includes a fully voiced humbucker in the bridge and a true single coil neck pickup reflecting the layout of several of Bellamy’s stage and studio custom instruments.
The controls on the MBC-1 are simple while versatile. There is a single volume control, master tone and a three way switch. This controls the humbucker/ single coil pickup combination. It all works together with the kill button and the overall instrument design to give you a highly creative and great sounding instrument.
