Here's a video of my guitarist using a red sparkle during a rehearsal of my MUSE tribute band for those interested... it sounds fantastic! Enjoy!

I'm primarily a bassist, but I've been wanting to get into guitar. Currently, I have an acoustic, but I would like to buy an electric as soon as I'm financially able. I figured the MBC-1 would be a good option. For those of you who live in the US, where did you buy your MBC-1? It seems the Manson website itself has a better price than Guitar Center, but shipping's an extra $200. Amazon's got it for around $450, but I'm not sure if buying from there would be a great plan. The main reason Manson seems like a nice deal is because they include a deluxe gig bag, but idc how nice it is anyway
Thanks!

I got mine directly from them, but that was before they were readily available over here. I'd just get it from somewhere in the US, especially if you can try it out first. Keep in mind you'll also have to pay import tax and possibly state tax on top of shipping.

so to those who upgraded the bridge pickups to an MBK2 how much difference in the tone and output did you notice?

I wouldn't bother, I notice little difference between the Cort and Manson pickup personally. Both are really good pickups.

I saw your posts recently. How are you liking it so far?

And I noticed a bit of a difference actually. MBK seemed a bit more cutting/brighter, but not a massive difference in output.

In terms of the guitar? Absolutely loving it, I'd argue that I prefer it over my EVO which is outstanding considering the price.

I personally would put the MBK-2 in the red MBC for looks, otherwise I don't see myself changing it any time soon.

I think the stock humbucker sounds pretty decent. I had a MBC-1 a while back with the usual mods (sustainiac, electronics upgrade, etc) but kept the original bridge humbucker.

If you get the guitar and want something brighter, then the MBK-2 would be the way to go. Maybe ask rust_relic, as I sold him that guitar, and he's used it with both pickups.

Have you guys had any experience with the Psychopaf PF-1? Looks like it's becoming the eventual replacement for the MBK-2 in Matt's guitars. Just wanted to know the differences in tone/output between them. I'm thinking of upgrading my guitar with either.

Yeah I have those in a few of my guitars.

The PF-1 is supposed to be a very bright pickup, but I've found it louder and fuller than the MBK-2. Still very cutting though. I much prefer it over the MBK-2 (which was my favorite for a long time)

Can it clean up as clear and sparkly as the MBK can? I haven't heard it used like that yet, that's why I've been leaning slightly towards the MBK, but if the psychopaf can do cleans as well as teh mbk i'll get that.

Yeah definitely. It's not bass heavy/dark if that's what you're asking - probably the opposite, but not to the point where it's too much. Or thin sounding in some guitars, which I found the MBK-2 to be.

Cheers for that, think I'll go with the PF-1.
