Wembley Music Centre is proud to introduce you to this fierce yet powerful electric guitar that looks, plays, feels and sounds like a guitar that is from a significantly higher price point! Designed by the very same Hugh Manson who creates Matt Bellamy's own guitars, the Cort Stage Series M-Jet takes inspiration from the Manson 'Stealth Bomber' that has been used extensively for the Muse 'Drones' world tour. Whilst it may not have all the whistles and bells of the Manson 'Stealth Bomber', it really does pack an enormous punch with what is on board - whilst remaining incredibly cost effective.
To start, Cort utilize basswood for the sleek Cutaway, matt-black body, allowing for the affordable nature. However, don't be fooled that because basswood is affordable, it certainly doesn't mean low quality, as it is the go-to wood for many other brands such as Ibanez, chosen for its neutral tonal nature, it allows the pick-ups to work their magic.
On that note, perhaps the most significant feature of the Cort M-Jet is that this guitar is equipped with a pair of genuine Manson designed Humbucker pick-ups. These pick-ups are the key to the weapon-grade driving force of tone that roars out of the instrument. Providing super clear high out put sonic tone, and working extremely well with stacks of effects to ensure it'll blow down the doors of any rehearsal room or venue it encounters. Controlled simply by a single volume knob, plus a selector switch, this is a truly tactile instrument regardless of whether you're a Muse-nut or not!
Meanwhile, other features that make this the M-Jet seriously impressive include the Canadian maple neck which gifts the player with exciting fluidity under the hand whilst a 24 fret fretboard allows the player to hit the higher reaches of the instruments capabilities. In addition to great feel, it has a very sleek Chinese fret markers that give a super cool, Oriental warrior touch to it. To ensure that you'll have pitch-perfect tuning consistency across the board, the M-Jet is equipped with a sturdy two-piece bridge and tailpiece, as well as lock-tuners.
