Cort Guitars and Manson Guitar Works Announce the M-Jet

Cort Guitars and Manson Guitar Works Announce the M-Jet

The guitar is based upon the Manson MA EVO profile model but aimed at players who use extreme sounds and altered tunings.

Seoul, Korea (February 8, 2017) -- Cort Guitars and British luthiers Manson Guitar Works are pleased to announce a new collaboration for 2017, the Cort/Manson M-Jet. The new guitar is based upon the Manson MA EVO profile model but aimed more towards the player where extreme playability, sounds, and altered tunings are required. The all-black visuals include hardware, new design custom pickups and Manson’s durable satin finish to create the M-Jet configuration.

While sharing the profile of the critically acclaimed Manson MA EVO series body and neck, many details distinguish the M-Jet variant. The neck profile is all new: thinner and flatter, it’s built for speed and incorporates reinforcing rods for any extreme tuning required. Immediately obvious are the “Hanzi” characters detailing neck positions in Chinese number symbols. Less obvious is the smooth compound radius and 24-fret fingerboard design offering ease of performance throughout the whole neck. Locking tuners offer solid stability and ease of string changing.

Manson’s decades of experience have resulted in a new twin humbucker pickup set that offers a full response neck combined with an aggressive but detailed high output bridge design.

MSRP $699 USD
