The long awaited prototype of our Mantus guitar is now complete and in testing stage! Testing should be done within a week (testing involves among other things the balance when playing, sitting, etc, as well as overall play-ability and the sound of the pickup choices).
We will also be doing a bass version of the Mantus as well!
And now.... we present... the Mantus prototype! (please note it is just a basic finish for the prototype!)
Features of the Mantus:
- reminiscent of the BC Rich Warlock, it has a very "hard rock" and "metal" look to it
- Humbucker / Single Coil / Humbucker (HSH) setup
- both humbuckers are sealed to reduce noise
- Bridge p/up @ 8 Neck @ 15 ohm. Middle pickup @ 10 with 5 way switch and 500k pots (1 volume 2 tone)
- hard tail bridge
- strat style pick guard
- Maple neck, truss rod, and engineered rosewood (fake rosewood) fingerboard
