NAMM 2016: Manson Guitar Works and Cort have announced a new Red Sparkle MBC-1

Manson Guitar Works has revealed a new Red Sparkle finish option for its popular Matt Bellamy signature model, the MBC-1. Plus they have announced left handed versions in the near future also. The Muse man’s first affordable signature model received rave reviews when it was rolled out last February and, at RM 2,490, represented excellent value for money. These Cort models allow everyone a shot at owning a guitar inspired by the guitars Matt plays live and in the studio, featuring their modern styling and functional hardware. Up till now all the MBC-1 instruments have been in a plain black finish.

The original MBC-1 was very well received globally when it was launched in 2015 (MIA ‘Electric Guitar of The Year Award’, Total Guitar ‘Best Buy’ (5/5) and Guitarist Magazine ‘Gear Of The Year Award 2015’) and I would imagine these new guitars will follow in those footsteps.

Manson/Cort Red Sparkle MBC-1 press release
