This is what I'm wondering, I going to make some custom hardware once the tuners come so I can make them bespoke to the tuners. Hopefully it's actually possible with the cort hardware if not it will be gotohs And yeah I'm going for the MBK-2, FSK-401 set up but I'm going to play it for a bit with the standard pups as I want to see what they sound like.

With those 2 upgrades it'd still cost under 1000 which is really tempting.

I have just emailed Adrian at the Works and he says that a full list of options will be finalised and announced soon. I specifically asked about the custom tuners and he said that custom knobs are definitely available but never answered about tuners. My guess is that they won't fit on the Cort tuners. No cases are provided either so it looks like i'll be going for the 109 hiscox option

Call me a conspiracy theorist but i have a feeling that the neck pickup in the Cort is the same neck single coil that replaced the sustainer in Matt's carbon.

Look at 14:04 in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jiro61UjbB4

Maybe the carbon was just an excuse to test the new pickup because Matt needed the nice smooth neck tone for Animals and wanted a better pickup than the Fernandes which isn't great unless it's sustaining?

I guess it is possible but with Manson's having such a close relationship with BKP it could be anything.

Do you think BKP could have had a bit of involvement in the new pickup designs?

Not officially but I'd be surprised if Hugh hadn't spoken to Tim at all about it

I love all the secretive ideas that seem to go into Mansons, it always seems like there's some mystery to what they're doing, i can't wait for the official options list to be published!

From the sound of things, they're made by cort, but to a custom spec

Also, pretty sure Matt's carbon has a seymour duncan neck pickup.

My guess is though it's just the coil windings and stamping Manson on the pickup . I wouldn't expect anything else beyond that purely because of the cost.

Do you have any idea of what Seymour Duncan it could be? I am planning on getting a Cort and would like good suggestions for a pickup to put in the neck as i'm going to go for an MBK to put in the bridge
