Leather gloves or bare hands, Sir?

I suppose it could be taken either way. I mean who knows what goes on in that workshop when the sun goes down?

Hey guys, just wanting to ask something. I'm looking into getting a Manson guitar, but I'm just wondering, are the MA series guitars better or are the Matt Bellamy Signatures better?

 

Thanks

i would say the MB1's are better, you pretty much get what you pay for :D

 

ask the master @james90

I always get excited when I see musecasters or rust_relic post in this thread - it means there's something noteworthy!

 

and it depends what you're looking for really. Do you just want a really good guitar, or a really good but better guitar with a MIDI screen and a red glitter finish and a certificate and the same shape as matt and built in the UK?

Manson MB-1 > Manson MA Guitar > Cort MBC-1

 

Manson MB-1 has a waiting list and is normally about a year to complete

 

Manson MA Guitar and Cort MBC-1 are pretty much in stock or a few months waiting list

 

You do get what you pay for but if you can sacrifice not having a Manson logo on the headstock the Cort guitar is fantastic value for money

 

I was playing my Cort into a Kemper PowerRack (costing 1800 pounds) at the weekend, didn't sound massively different from when I played my MB-1 into a Diezel VH4 (costing 6200 pounds) a month beforehand :)

I see it as the signature series are genuine Manson guitars, the MA's aren't.

Yeah, the MA range of guitars are basically kit guitars. Unless it's hand build in Exeter, it's not really a real Manson.

Damn, I guess there was more of a price difference between 2004 and now than we originally thought!

He didn't say that though. I do think the MB guitars are better guitars (MIDI and other stuff aside) than the MAs, but then they cost over twice as much.

 

Would I still consider the MA guitars legit? Yeah why not. They're meant to be production custom guitars from what I understand, so they're not like a generic off the shelf tele copy or anything - they're still made to a custom spec, but in a factory rather than in the UK.

Donut like.

 

I personally think that the MA is not far behind the MGs in build terms. I guess things like wood selection are better with the mbs. That said, I thought the E series guitars were much nicer to play than the mb2se and the MAs, so that's what I bought.

I know they're really just import guitars, and probably £500 more than a comparable prs for example but they're really nice guitars.

Does anyone remember the review that was in guitarist in December 2012(?)

They reviewed an e62 and a 7 I think.

 

I'd like to read it again, I'm sure I have a copy somewhere but I don't know where.

Anyone have scans??

Yep, pretty sure that's the same text. I remember they looked so sxy on the cover, I bought it then and there. Hadn't read it in years before that.

Knew you'd sort me out James ;)

I'd really love to get an MB-1, but the thing is I play gigs often and I'd feel weird using someone else's signature guitar.

Then you should probably get the MA.

 

I wonder how Jim felt playing that John Mayer signature strat. Must have felt like wearing another man's underwear.

Isn't there some dude with an MB-1 that plays for some pretty well known electronic/pop band? I can understand why some people would rather not have a signature guitar though
