We could start a cort owners club on Facebook, but let other people in as long as they're not a knob.

Sorry in advance to most of the people here.

I realize that it won't be ready until next march or whatever, but let us know what you think anyway. Are you going to change anything?

Yep, I think we can guess what will replace the single coil Will seem a shame to put holes in a new guitar though!! I'm also going to make some custom hardware for the tuners to match the control knobs.

I've decided I will give the bridge pick up a chance but I suspect that it may be replaced when my finances recover from Christmas and the car I'm about to buy. Guess I could always throw the fernandes pick up in there, not sure I actually know what they are like as no one ever seems to fit them!!

Hi everybody i'm new here... Anyway, i've been looking at Mansons for ages waiting for them to release a more reasonably priced MB guitar, what are people's expectations for this one? I am looking at buying one when they are released but by the time i have modified it with the custom hardware and sustainer and such it is pushing 1000 which i could get a John Mayer strat for and that's made in the USA

Chevrolets are made in USA, Jaguars (or jyag wars) are made in the UK.

Think I'd prefer a Jaguar.

Actual relevant advice though, it's all well in saying things like "I want custom hardware and a sustainer and a fuzz factory and three chaoz padzer in it" but I always point out the same thing, do you really need those things in your guitar?

Personally, if I wanted to have a guitar that looked like one Matt Bellamy uses, I'd probably buy the cort, but I'd only do the mods that I'd actually use. Example, I like the MXR Microamp, so I would consider having one of those built into the guitar. Does Matt use one? Nope. Does that matter? Nope.

Of course, Jaguar all day long!
What i was meaning is the Cort is made in Thaiwan isn't it and it seems like a lot for a guitar made by a brand that isn't renown for it's mid to upper market price level instruments.
I still think a pickup change would be necessary even if not to a Fernandes then another SC in the neck and i really like the custom hardware so that's personal. Still talking upwards of 750 to 800 all in and that's without a case included which Mansons charge another 100 for.
Still i'm waiting for the first review in Total Guitar which is released on Jan 19th so we'll see then if it's worth it

My stance is Hugh has spent a lifetime building a reputation, it's unlikely that he will let this ruin it. I suspect that it will certainly be very good bang for buck, not as good as a full on Manson but much better than other guitars at that price point

I got mine for free i think

Honestly it's down to personal preference, The cort is probably gonna be like an epiphone is to a gibson, not that much difference but just enough to justify it being cheaper, Mansons feel and sound incredible so if a Cort is even 75% of what a Manson is it's worth it for that price

In fairness, I'm considering just buying one. Not even sure if I will mod it, Cort's aren't that bad but I'm expecting the neck to be a bit on the thick side.

Fanboi.

According to their website they're set up and inspected by the same techs that produce all the other MB series guitars.

it was just that first batch of EVOs that included the hard cases.

and I'm not sure what you mean about epiphone and gibson, but I'm more likely to spend my money on a high end epiphone LP instead of a LOWER end gibson model for 10x the price.

Not all that familiar with the stuff coming out of the cort factory, but the imports in general are pretty decent at this point

Truest statement of the day, high end epiphone blow low end Gibson out of the water!!!
